Hi there, I am Marie
Mental health is health. I believe strong connected relationships are crucial for good mental health and wellbeing.
Through my work as a speaker, podcaster, and trainer I aim to normalise conversations about mental health and give those who care the tools to ask the tough questions.
I support individuals and communities to discover ways to improve their mental wellbeing and create positive relationships at work, school, and home.
