Lindsey’s Going the Distance to Support Mental Health at St. Joe’s

Meet Lindsey Charbonneau, a registered practical nurse in the mental health and addiction program at St. Joe’s. This year, she has decided to lace up her shoes and take on the 30k Around the Bay Road Race!
This year’s race may be virtual, but Lindsey’s commitment to supporting the mental health and addiction program at our Hospital is very real.

“I run because it’s my therapy. I use it to help clear my head when my thoughts get to be too heavy. As a nurse, especially working during the pandemic, it’s been a big struggle for me, emotionally and physically. (Running) really helps me to be a better mom, be a better spouse, be a better nurse.”
