With a successful roll-out of a one-day Mental Health workshop for leaders and a 3 hour version for all staff, Lyne Moussa continues to help normalize the conversation empowering employees to lean on support and access resources sooner than later. With a BSc, in Biology, Diploma in Human Resources Management, CPHR, Diploma in Disability and Rehabilitation Management, Certificate in Leading a Mentally Healthy Workplace and Certificate in Mediation & Conflict Resolution, Lyne’s purpose is to enable self-care in others so they can realize the benefits to themselves and all those around them.

Professor, Substance Abuse Expert, Criminologist and Behavioural Scientist Geri Bemister joins MindWell-U for a one hour Q & A on how mindfulness helps addicts and their families on their journey to recovery by:
Teaching them how to stay in the moment without judgement, one day at a time
Lowering stress which is critical to a drug addict in recovery who is much more sensitive to stress
Hardwiring happiness so everyone can notice, savour and enjoy the happy moments which can be few and far between
Boosting the immune system which is compromised by stress and drug & alcohol abuse
Ms. Bemister was recently appointed to the Canadian Centre for Substance Abuse’s Expert Advisory Committee and is the Executive Director at VisionQuest Recovery Society. VisionQuest assists in the rehabilitation, reintegration and healing recovery of men in various stages of the Canadian Criminal Justice System.
