Robin Wright


Robin is a strong advocate for First Responder mental health, having served her community as an Advanced Care Paramedic for nearly 20 years in both Toronto and Ottawa.  After receiving a work-related diagnosis of PTSD, Robin struggled to find peer support locally which led her to open a support group for front-line professionals in Ottawa in 2017.

Robin received her certificate in Peer and Trauma Support Systems (PATSS) through the Mood Disorders Society of Canada in 2018 and continues to study social work and human services through Athabasca University.

Through partnership with the Heroes Equine Learning Program (H.E.L.P.), Robin co-founded H.E.L.P. Peer Support in Ottawa in 2021.  Robin continues to facilitate peer support meetings regularly and strives to share the positive benefits of peer support with all First Responders, Military, Corrections, and frontline professionals who are on their journey back to wellness.

As an advocate for First Responder mental health, Robin is proud and honoured to be a member of the First Eyes team and the proactive approach they take at preventing mental health injuries among front-line professionals.

Robin spends much of her personal time camping, spending time with her family and three dogs and volunteering with a local Ottawa dog rescue.
