Wendy Enberg, Chair
As a person who lives with a mental health condition, Wendy is passionate about reducing stigma surrounding mental illness. She has several years experience navigating the complex mental health systems and recognized the need for assisting others in accessing the supports they need by establishing “Mental Health Matters Edmonton”, a local peer-support advocacy group. Inspired to do more and create more opportunities for social inclusion, she helped create EMHAC and serves as its present chair. Combined with her years of experience working in the social services sector of the government, Wendy is a strong force in advancing the rights and needs of the mentally ill in the Greater Edmonton area.
As the EMHAC chair, Wendy is the passion and vision behind the scenes and it is this dedication that has inspired this Executive Team to strive to create community connections, build relationships and help organizations that are improving the lives of people living with mental illness.
