I am a Registered Social Worker and Registered Psychotherapist (RP) currently in private practise. Throughout my professional career and in my volunteer work I’ve been invested in promoting excellence in healthcare with a focus on improving the health and well being of people whose voices and needs have not always been heard, understood or supported.
I’m a passionate advocate for community mental health services and have devoted my professional career, in leadership roles at COTA and ARF (now CAMH), and my personal life, to creating a better world for people with mental health challenges.
I’m an optimist with a heart for social justice, urban living, and outdoor adventure and I’m blessed to share it all with my husband and three kids. I’m also a career marketer who has helped leading brands, large high-tech disrupters, and more recently, had the privilege of working in the charitable sector.
My name is Marilyn Herbert. I am a former teacher who currently reviews fiction for a number of groups. Reading is my special interest, as are my four grandchildren.
