Ayn Wilcox is the Executive Director of Klinic Community Health. In this conversation she connects the dots between her life learning at the Manitoba Agriculture Museum in Austin Manitoba and her current role as Executive Director at Klinic Community Health. Her life journey has been filled with a passion for learning and appreciating the importance of community. When it comes to understanding and de-stigmatizing mental health, Ayn firmly believes we are all in this together. Ayn believes if we don't take into account the basic requirements around civil rights and freedoms, the economic and social factors that include things like poverty and sexual orientation, gender identity, race and ethnicity, including here in Canada the ongoing impacts of colonialism, we're going to need to continue to invest exponentially more resources but we're not going to move the dial understanding the depth of mental health in a significant way.
