Why Healthcare

Chantell is passionate about providing mental healthcare because she firmly believes that mental well-being is a crucial aspect of overall health that often receives inadequate attention. The impact of mental health on individuals' lives is profound, yet it is frequently minimized or overlooked. She is dedicated to changing this narrative and advocating for the recognition and prioritization of mental health.
