Hey, I'm Rachel

I’m from Australia originally but am making Canada home for the next life chapter. I’ve always loved talking with people and making connections everywhere I go. I honestly believe that people are the most precious resource that we have. 

That’s a big part of why I went to University in Australia to study Psychology and Human Behaviour*. From there, I used these studies in different work settings including prisons, schools, not-for-profit organisations and rehabilitation centres. The people I worked with came from diverse backgrounds, cultures, life outlooks and had a huge range of different issues they were working through. 

The link that I found through all these experiences was that every single person benefited from simply talking to someone.

Many existing mental health support systems can present barriers to a lot of everyday people including the big price tag and the academic jargon.

That is why I decided to create this platform for everyone and anyone who needs it, to find out just how much good we can really do When We Talk.
