I was diagnosed with PTSD after serving as a Juror in a graphic First Degree Murder Trial in Ontario, Canada. After delivering the verdict I had difficulty returning to my life, and struggled with what I saw in the courtroom. I learned at the time that Jurors were offered no support from the Courts after serving their civic duty. I had to find support on my own. I was determined that no Juror should have to suffer as a result of serving their civic duty, like I did. I worked hard to raise the issue, and was successful in having the Governments of Ontario and Saskatchewan launch their own Juror Assistance Programs. My lobbying continues with the remaining Provincial Governments, and the Federal Government. I remain a PTSD patient, committed to reducing the stigma around Mental Illness.
