The Hope and Area Transition Society (HATS) is welcoming a new community mental health liaison nurse at Hope House and the new extreme weather shelter that recently opened.
“I bring with me extensive knowledge and training in the mental health field from the past 12 years of my nursing career,” wrote Deanna Deleurme in an introductory email.
“I have gained valuable experience from my past employment with one of B.C.’s specialized psychiatric facilities … (where) I was challenged with working with some of (the province’s) most extreme psychiatric (patients).
“Mental health and addictions have always been a passion of mine (and) I am looking forward to meeting and working with the many clients (who) access the shelters in Hope.”
HATS is a non-profit society that supports Hope and the surrounding area by providing programs and services to individuals and families affected by social issues, and aspires to create healthy social and emotional communities that are free from violence, abuse, addictions, and homelessness.
