Colleen Coffey was elected Atlantic Regional Executive Vice-President at the 7th Regional Triennial Convention on June 24, 2017 in Saint John, NB.

She held a seat on the PSAC Atlantic Council for three terms and was elected the Alternate REVP for those terms. 

Sister Coffey was elected to be the female PSAC Representative on the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour Executive Council and held this seat for several terms until she was elected the Female Vice President at Large that she maintained for two terms.

Mental Health Week is an annual national event that takes place during the first week of May.  Mental Health is still stigmatized in today’s society, therefore it is important that we share valuable information around mental health and provide help when needed.  Let’s be clear, mental health is a state of well-being.  It affects how we think, feel, act and interact with others.
