Board member, Dr. Tisha Gangopadhyay, is a registered psychologist. Her main job (aside from being the mother to two young daughters) is working with young offenders through the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
Over the upcoming months we will feature some of our board members so you can see for yourself the amazing expertise that shapes our work. First up is Dr. Andrew Macnab, our lead Paediatrician who has been involved with KidCareCanada since its inception – and before. Andrew is a recognized champion of education for girls in developing countries, and founder of the African Hearts School in Uganda.

If you (or someone you know) has thoughts of doing self-harm, or harm to a baby or anyone else, please call to speak with a trained crisis worker.

In British Columbia, Canada you can call Mental Health Support (BC-wide) at 310-6789 or you can call the North American line 1 800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
In ANY crisis, your local emergency number is another option and it is always available. Use 911 in North America, 999 in the UK or, if you're elsewhere, use the emergency number for your area.
