As a Journalist and Blogger for the Huffington Post, Patricia Tomasi has joined the effort of so many to raise awareness, eliminate stigma, and help improve the prevention and treatment of mental illness.
Patricia is a former broadcast journalist with CFRB, CBC, CTV, and Global TV in Toronto, Vancouver, Timmins, and Thunder Bay. She also worked as a communications and media relations officer for the Ontario Ombudsman and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
Patricia turned to writing after suffering from postpartum depression – twice. She also has general anxiety and depression and possibly bipolar disorder and ADHD. Read all about her ongoing journey here as she attempts to navigate the world of mental health in search of answers. She also has a daughter with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder and finds herself often writing about these topics too.
When Patricia was going through postpartum depression, she often wished there was a support group in her area where she could meet with other moms going through the same experience. Unable to find one, she decided to start her own group online which has now grown to over 1000 women. If you are looking for support along your journey, consider joining Patricia’s Postpartum Depression and Anxiety Private Facebook Support Group.
