The Canadian Bar Association is well aware of this situation: its Board of Directors has created a CBA Well-Being Subcommittee, whose mission is to provide assistance to professionals facing mental health problems.

Catherine Cloutier has always been driven by the desire to provide assistance around her, first as a dietitian. In the same spirit, she has just accepted to sit on that subcommittee.

One more way in which the people at RSS demonstrate their commitment to our community.
