November 1, 2023

Tobacco Free Partnership Indian River County is pleased to welcome Derek Weintraub as our new Partnership Chair! Derek has nearly 10 years of experience in the field of mental health and substance abuse. He immediately started his career as a dual-diagnosis mental health and substance abuse clinical therapist, taking on school-based positions with constant promotions at almost every job, including being the lead behavioral role for a school for a few years. He currently serves as program manager and therapist at a leading nonprofit in Indian River County. Derek does public speaking events to support mental health including on iheartradio and Indian River State College. 

Derek is the "Self-Care Guru". He is constantly working with the Treasure Coast community on the importance of self care and prioritizing mental health and breaking the stigma. Derek is also the Chief Executive Officer for Life Reconstruction: Mental Health Matters, an organization that provides life coaching, human resources consulting and nonprofit/behavioral health consulting, with a Youtube/Facebook show/toolbox coming in December 2023. Derek is committed to helping improve and heal the community one person and agency at a time.

We are looking forward to the unique insights that Derek will bring to the Tobacco Free Partnership Indian River team in his new role. As we are focusing on recruiting new community partners this year, we are honored to be gaining Derek and his many skills.
