Gurmit Kaur

Facilitator Research Assistant

Gurmit Kaur is a Psychologist and an Entrepreneur. While pursuing her MBA in Community Economic Development at Cape Breton University, she got associated with the CAPSAP team as a Research Assistant. Her role was as a focus group facilitator for North Indian and South Indian Female students at Cape Breton University.

She thoroughly enjoyed the detail-oriented training process right from Trauma-informed practices to role-plays. Due to COVID-19, the focus groups were conducted online albeit smoothly and efficiently with the latest technological advancements. She even collaborated as a transcriptionist with the CAPSAP team for various recordings. Throughout the process the bond they shared being in a virtual platform was special. Being a passionate mental health advocate, she hopes this research reaches the wider audience and its effectiveness makes a difference in their lives. #makeinformedchoices
