Director of Education & Advocacy
Trisha has had a passion for working with children and youth for as long as she can remember. She graduated with a degree in social work from UW-Whitewater (Go Warhawks!) in 2008, and decided to continue her education by pursuing a Master's degree, which she earned in 2016. As the Education Program Coordinator at MHA, Trisha is able to pursue her dream of working with youth by educating students in Sheboygan County about a variety of mental health topics, including awareness, prevention, and stigma elimination. As a mindful classroom instructor, Trisha is able to share mindfulness with students in our area, teaching them valuable skills in order to focus, stay calm, self-regulate, and boost self-esteem. Trisha lives with her husband in the Sheboygan area with their son, Hayden, daughter Scarlett, and fur-baby Maddy.
I spend time with family and friends. This time is especially more wonderful if we are listening to music or eating amazing food! - Trisha Erpelding
