Accepting the position as CEO of the Nova Scotia Mental Health Foundation she is now pursuing her passion to raise awareness of mental health issues.
In the role, Starr is raising the organization’s profile while introducing new programs to make people’s day-to-day lives easier.

It's a challenge Starr is embracing. I hope you enjoy my wide-ranging conversation with the candid, compassionate and dedicated Starr Cunningham
