This is Sunny
Sunny Noelle Naughton, a Vermont native, is a nationally recognized social entrepreneur leading Sunshine Silver Lining, a Mental Health and Communications consultancy heading into its tenth year - a decade of development alongside learning what communities need in real-time.
With a background in human services, journalism, and the entertainment business, Sunny engages with individuals about why mental health matters thoughtfully. Through Sunshine Silver Lining, Sunny accesses collaboration, education, and facilitation to support individuals, communities, and organizations to further these conversations.
I advise organizations on how to implement mental health initiatives through training, consulting, and communications.
I connect...dots. In the field of mental health and communications, I learn where an individual, organization, or company is currently, and connect them to efficient resources, whether it be awareness classes, individual referrals to services, or brainstorming sessions about what their next steps can be.
Wow! I know that sounds superlative, but Wow...Sunny is a dynamo. She understands how to get things done - with grace and her unique style. She is an organizer par excellence and knows how to put a plan together. Sunny builds collaborative teams and knows how to share and delegate responsibilities. If I could bottle Sunny, I could change the world.
As one of the early members of Mental Health First Aid USA in 2009, co-author of much of the curricula over the years, and one who has helped build the program to more than 3 million trained, I was overjoyed to meet Sunny and see the incredible work she has done in support of the program. I look forward to her future projects and plan to be a collaborator/client/customer of whatever she decides to build. If you have the chance to work with her and her team, you are in for a treat!
Sunny did a fantastic job! She is kind and compassionate and easily kept me engaged. Sharing her own stories was excellent too!
Amazing energy for what could be a challenging subject.
Friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, direct, and concise with the information.
