Liane Covert

Mental Health Quality and Practice Committee

One of the newest members of NHH’s PFAC, Liane answered the call for volunteers in the summer of 2022. She is a resident of Port Hope with a background in health care and social services. She is trained as a PSW and has experience supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. Liane’s first introduction to the hospital sector was as a volunteer, lending her time in her youth as a ‘candy-striper.’

Liane’s interest in serving on NHH’s Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is inspired by her desire to destigmatize myths and misconceptions surrounding mental illness and addictions.

In her PFAC role, Liane advocates for patients seeking mental health and addiction services, while helping to enhance supports and accessibility for residents in her community.

Liane brings a unique depth and breadth of knowledge to PFAC having experienced care at NHH in the following ways:

Committed to “giving a voice to those who are overlooked or forgotten so their voice can have fair and equal representation,” Liane currently serves on the Community Mental Health program’s Quality and Practice Committee.
