Stephanie Nassis is a specialist and leader in workplace wellness topics such as stress and risk management strategies, mental health awareness, suicide prevention, emotional self-defence, and nutrition. With over 20 years of policing experience in the Greater-Toronto-Area, Stephanie has responded to a wide range of critical incidents such as traffic fatalities, sudden deaths, homicides, and suicides. Through these on-the-job experiences, she has come to intuitively understand the effects of stress on the body and how it can develop into more complex health concerns if ignored.
Stephanie, a pioneer in police wellness, understands the value in taking a holistic approach and has introduced mindfulness meditation and trauma-sensitive yoga to front-line officers as an accredited instructor in Toronto. She is an expert in stress recognition and is a police trainer for the education-based program designed to address and promote mental health called,
The Working Mind First Responders (TWMFR), formerly known as “Road to Mental Readiness” where she has trained police officers and civilians combined. Stephanie has received accredited training by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy Associates (FBINAA) as a certified Comprehensive Officer Resiliency Master Trainer in Quantico, Virginia.
She is currently the Member Support Coordinator for a large municipal police service in the Greater-Toronto-Area. She is part of the Critical Incident Response Team and does peer support for first responders with
Boots on the Ground.
She is also an advisory member for Circles for Reconciliation, which is about establishing trusting, and meaningful relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples as part of the 94 Calls to Action from the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Commission.’
As a mental health advocate, Stephanie is a client-focused and wellness-based consultant that educates those drawing upon her own mental health survival techniques that touch upon work-life balance, and the importance of mental and emotional balance–the very essence of health and vitality.
Stephanie’s unique perspective can shift audiences from ambivalence to empowerment that creates introspection at the very core of one’s being that distinguishes Stephanie as one of the most up-and-coming wellness professionals in today’s market.
