Shannon McGavin
Caregiver Groundbreaker
Shannon (she/her) is a system change leader dedicated to creating people-centred teams, facilitating community partnerships, and creating transformative change to increase youth and community wellness in rural communities across Canada. Driven by a commitment to integrated care, diversity and inclusion, psychological safety, and the importance of including lived and living expertise, Shannon focuses on creating holistic people-centred care models. Having worked to enhance outcomes for children, youth, and their families in education for over 25 years, Shannon believes that working together with local, national, and international contexts is instrumental in creating shared purpose and evidence-based integrated care. Throughout her own mental health challenges and supporting those she cares for, she shamelessly advocates for mental health and substance use transformation on several local and provincial advisory boards, community health organizations, local integrated youth service organizations, and in her own Community Wellness Collaborative.
