Adriana Elias,

Mental Health Strategist

I feel grateful to be part of this support community at VIU while working as a Mental Health Strategist. In my role, I oversee VIU Thrive events and programs led by students to promote Wellness and Mental Health on campus.

I was born and raised in El Salvador, in Central America, and have been enjoying the beautiful lands of Vancouver Island since 2019. I was a counsellor at postgraduate institutions, private practice, and other health organizations back home. Then, I came to Canada as an international student to pursue a master’s degree in special education at VIU.

While not working, I enjoy exploring nature or cuddling with my dog while watching movies with popcorn.
