Sheri Seguin is the Outreach Lead for the Rest of the State Regions (excluding NYC) and the CORE Peer Navigator for the North Country and Northern Central Regions at the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitative Services (NYAPRS).

Sheri is NYS Department of Health certified Citizen Public Health Leader, certified Peer Support Specialist, and NYS OMH & OASAS certified in Integrated Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Training.  She was Peer Support Specialist in a brand new SAMSHA grant funded Certified Community Based Behavioral Health Center (CCBHC) in her hometown.  Sheri then made the move on to a peer-run agency in her hometown which had opened a new Supportive Housing Program in an old school the agency had bought and repurposed where they also provided CORE services. While at this agency, Sheri was appointed to be the Central Region’s Coordinator for the Regional Peer Network through the Wellness Collaborative of NY IPA administered through the Mental Health Empowerment Project.

Sheri is a proud North Country native who chose to use knowledge and her lived experience to try to help others to live their best lives. Because of her own lived experiences, Sheri went on a quest to understand why some people struggle with so much pain, gain the words to name the pain people were experiencing, why they use substances to try to ease that pain, and learn ways to help people better deal with the negative experiences of life  and to find their ways to achieve their life goals and dreams.

Sheri has Bachelor of Science degrees in Literature and Elementary Education (N-6) and Master of Education degrees in Reading (K-12) and Special Education (K-12). She volunteers her time as a Board of Directors Member for the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways, is a member of Zonta International, chairperson of a newly approved NAMI NYS Affiliate for Jefferson & St. Lawrence Counties, and a MHANYS Mental Health Community Partner. Sheri is a proud sister, aunt and great-aunt. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her 13-year-old Labrador, Bella Luna, capturing pictures of the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains.
