Damen DeLeenheer, RN

Regional Director - Northern

As a clinical nurse educator for Northern Health's community and rural Mental Health and Substance Use programs in the northern interior, Damen works with staff from virtually any program that have requests for practice support when engaging with any person requiring mental health related interventions. It is this challenge to meet the diversity of requests that keeps Damen engaged in his role.

When not supporting clinical staff, Damen teaches 3rd and 4th year nursing students in Baccalaureate program at the University of Northern British Columbia. Working with students and clinicians is an opportunity for him to share real time clinical practice challenges between the two groups as well as looking for ways to implement each group's creative suggestions to solving them.
