Congratulations to Social Worker at the HOpe Centre, Denise Carter, the recipient of our Workplace Inspiration Award.
Denise is one of the original staff members recruited to the Carlile Youth Concurrent Disorders Centre to help form a large multidisciplinary team to treat the mental health of youth and their families.
Since day one, she has been a beacon of light who uses her optimism, humor and professional competence to achieve positive outcomes in challenging situations. Her colleagues say “she’s an individual who bring positive energy to the workplace and does not hesitate to go the extra mile!”
Denise’s involvement in the Centre’s quality assurance committee and in developing educational groups for patients has also led to greater patient engagement, and her work has enabled the entire team to achieve treatment goals that are personalized to each patient and their family. With Denise’s support, the Carlile Centre team has been able to better coordinate care and reintegrate youth back into their communities with optimal support.
