      Heather Young Sarkis

      Heather Young Sarkis (March 19, 1982 – April 14, 2024) was a dedicated and compassionate Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who made significant contributions to the field of mental health. Known for her tireless efforts to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness, Heather's holistic approach to patient care included psychotherapy, stress management, nutrition, mindfulness practices, and medication management.

      Heather's career in the mental health field spanned over 15 years, during which she held roles in private practice, clinical faculty, and as a preceptor for Nurse Practitioner students. She was a Fellow in Integrative Medicine and co-founder of the Sarkis Family Charitable Foundation, a grassroots effort aimed at reducing the stigma of mental illness through community education and engagement. Her work was widely recognized, including being honored as one of the "40 Gators Under 40" by the University of Florida and presenting at TEDxGainesville.

      Heather's commitment to mental health extended beyond her clinical practice. She actively engaged in public speaking and educational initiatives to promote mental health awareness and reduce stigma. Her TEDx talk, "Stop the Stigma: Why It's Important to Talk About Mental Health," highlighted her dedication to this cause and inspired many to join the conversation about mental health.

      In honor of Heather's life and mission, we are excited to announce the upcoming Heather Sarkis "Stop the Stigma" Health Grant. This grant will help patients afford mental health care, continuing Heather's legacy of compassion and advocacy.
