Sinikka Waugh and Ramona Wink discuss 4 Things You May Not Know About Mental Health (in Iowa).
Ramona Wink is a licensed mental health counselor and motivational public speaker with 515 Therapy and Consulting in West Des Moines, IA. In her role as a therapist, Ramona enjoys working with both individuals and adults, helping to navigate problematic issues in their lives and lean into living as their best, authentic self! As a motivational public speaker, Ramona is passionate about reaching audiences of all sizes because of the mental health crisis we face in Iowa due to the extreme shortage of mental health professionals. On stage, storytelling is Ramona's superpower and she quickly connects with the group as she shares her wisdom and knowledge that has come through countless hours in her therapist's chair and through her own personal and professional life experience.
Ramona was recently appointed by the Governor to serve on the Iowa Board of Behavioral Sciences. She is also an Ambassador for the Make It OK Campaign as part of the Iowa The Healthiest State Initiative. She is a member of the Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association.
Before becoming a mental health therapist, Ramona was in ministry for 15 years and banking for 15 years. She is a mother and a grandmother and enjoys living her best life with her partner.
