Irene Skehen, Wellness and Recovery Educator

The road to wellness and recovery can, at times, be overwhelming.  We are here to accompany you on your journey to well-being.  You do not have to do it alone - you are surrounded and supported by your peers.  At Healthy Minds we are in full recovery mode providing an array of personal development/mental health recovery programs and workshops.  Irene combines traditional and complimentary approaches to health, well-being and mental health recovery, providing alternative ways for people to look at their health and their lives.  The results have been amazing, we are seeing real change.
