VINCENT SAVOIA BIOGRAPHY

Vincent Savoia is a transformational leader who has significantly impacted the trajectory of the mental health conversation in Canada. He approaches every challenge by following his motto, “Be inspired to change yourself, and then change the world.” As a former paramedic and a PTSD survivor, he is no stranger to crisis and trauma.

Instead of letting various traumatic experiences define him, he has made it his life’s mission to learn how to deal with trauma in healthy ways, develop resiliency, and positively impact mental health conversations.

He has been providing trauma-informed coaching since 2010. During one of your coaching sessions, you can count on him to lead a compassionate, meaningful, and proactive conversation in a way that makes you feel safe to discuss difficult topics. You will come to understand how trauma has affected you, and you will learn strategies that will assist you in unlocking your potential.

​As part of his dedication to reducing the stigma around mental health conversations, Vincent Savoia founded the Tema Conter Memorial Trust. This organization was instrumental in providing advocacy, education, training, and peer and psychological support to Canada’s public safety community.

He has over 37-years of experience in education, financial services, mental health, not-for-profit, and public safety sectors. He is an articulate communicator that always gets rave reviews from his peers.

With a strong moral compass and with a very pragmatic approach to changing the world, Vincent Savoia has been recognized for his accomplishments by the Governor-General of Canada, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.

I have known Mr. Vincent Savoia for three decades. He is a warm, compassionate and caring human being who channelled his own personal psychological response to a tragic event into a highly effective effort to raise awareness of critical incident stress and PTSD and their effect on first responders.

His leadership and advocacy has not only helped him achieve this goal but has directly contributed to the development and implementation of programs and legislation to support and assist individuals working in the emergency response and military communities who have been stricken by work-related mental injuries. Mr. Vincent Savoia is an amazing a tireless advocate for change. We owe a great debt to this man and to the Tema Center Memorial Trust. Thank you, Vincent

Vince has an extraordinary passion for helping others. Having the ability to say that I know Vince and have worked with him in any aspect is truly an honour and privilege. Recently, Vince and his team at the Tema Conter Memorial Trust undertook an immense and rewarding task to bring awareness and education to Canada’s emergency responders through the Heroes are Human PTSD Awareness Tour.

This tour has brought insight and attention to an injury that occurs to our emergency responders from professionals in the services and beyond. As Vince blazes the trails to awareness and education of our emergency responders, I am hopeful to be a small part of the great work that he continues to do!
