Angela Seabourne is a Canadian [i]Registered Clinical Social Worker and has provided mental health care to individuals and families for over 15 years. In addition to her private practice, Angela has worked in a variety of clinical settings ranging from psychiatric hospitals, community mental healthcare to forensic psychiatry, to name a few.
Angela provided advocacy and guidance for severely ill clients whose disorder more often than not pushed them to the fringes of society, often homeless and without the basic necessities of life. In this capacity, Angela helped her clients be independent and live with dignity. She accomplished this through advocating for financial compensation (i.e. disability benefits) and adequate housing, etc. This often involved working long hours, digging through mountains of paperwork, writing letters and making phone calls to the powers that be, accompanying clients to appointments and more. She did this with love in her heart and fire in her step!

She provided interviews to various press mediums a long with travelling across Canada, talking to kids in high school, meeting with school officials and giving school presentations.
