Sarah Leonard

 Executive Director of MHCAN

Intentional Peer Support Trainer & Group Facilitator


  I have been the Executive Director of MHCAN for ten years now.  I love my work and enjoy our team here immensely.  I have 32 years clean & sober & 26 years off of cigarettes.  I've been diagnosed with many mental health issues in my lifetime, from developmentally differently abled to having paranoid schizophrenia with psychotic tendencies, autism, bipolar disorder, depression and chronic acute PTSD, but I think of all of it except the autism as results of trauma.
