MEET ANTHONY RODRIGO "Brain health was always going to be part of the work. It's now 25+ years later"
My early career as a counselor was in a community living milieu serving adults with complex brain health issues. This led to the next 7 years as a child and youth worker in a hard to serve milieu. I was among a few select front line child and youth workers and larger case management team to pilot a first in Canada treatment and assessment model for dual diagnosed youth and adolescents presenting dangerous sexual behaviour. I was hooked, brain health was always going to be part of the work. It is now 25+ years later, 2021. My commitment remains strong. My still goal is to make a positive and sustainable impact, however small. Serving working populations: Associations, Employers, Professionals, Contract workers, Entrepreneurs, Parents
