Kate Gale, Peer Support Worker, Central Region, Manitoba

Hello, I’m Kate Gale! I was born & raised in Manitoba, mainly the Winnipeg area. I spent time trying out other parts of Canada, but ultimately decided Manitoba is home. I’m located in Portage La Prairie, in charge of supporting the Central Region. I am in a wonderful relationship that allows me to be a stepmom to a beautiful nine-year-old girl. We have one dog & three cats. I am a huge animal lover & spend time working with rescues & fundraising when I can. I also enjoy being outdoors spending time camping, hiking or kayaking.

I am also a huge animal lover. I spend time working with rescues & fundraising when I can. I come from a personal background of abuse, sexual assaults & cognitive behavioral therapy. I’ve worked as a youth peer support worker in high schools, I run a women’s only support group online, & help others with their fitness goals. Through MDAM, I will be focusing in areas such as military spouses, LGBTQ2S+ & helping to ending the mental illness stigma. If we cross paths, say hi!
