Sheila Duffy is the Director of Pacific Post Partum Support Society. Sheila has dedicated 17 years of her life to building empathy and compassion for women, children and families facing post partum depression and anxiety. Sheila’s mission is to end the isolation and distress experienced by many women and their families with the profound life change that accompanies the birth or adoption of a child. Sheila shares her own life experience as a mother in weekly support groups, telephone support, community workshops and family education sessions for isolated and marginalized women. She has a tremendous gift at facilitating challenging topics and builds empathy each and every day for stigmatized women, children and families. I wish to nominate Sheila for her endless passion, grace and energy that lights up any room she enters. Sheila is a truly remarkable woman!
