Launching the Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series: Meet Sheila

Starting in January 2020, Project Sleep will produce a monthly Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series. Each month, viewers will be able to gather online to watch a Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speaker or writer present their story live via our Facebook page.

On Sunday, Jan. 5th, 2020, Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speaker Sheila Coutts kicked off the Story Sharing Series by sharing her inspiring presentation.

About Sheila:

Sheila Coutts is a retired pediatric nurse with an interest in health education and wildlife rehabilitation living in Nova Scotia, Canada. She was diagnosed with narcolepsy after 25 years of symptoms. As a trained Rising Voices of Narcolepsy speaker, she is sharing her story to educate others and help bring sleep disorders to the mainstream of society and medicine.

About Rising Voices of Narcolepsy:

To improve public understanding of narcolepsy, Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program trains people with narcolepsy to share their stories through public speaking and writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs and beyond. Combining the power of real-life stories with expert communication strategies, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speakers and writers are effectively raising awareness and reducing stigma for all those facing narcolepsy.

Our next Rising Voices training sessions will be in the summer of 2020. Those interested in participating should look for the application release in mid-February 2020.

Spread the Word:

We’re excited to share these moving stories and powerful key messages with you each month.

Please spread the word to friends and family to learn more about narcolepsy!
