Daniel Dacombe, BA, MSc (he/him)

Knowledge Translation

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Daniel is a project lead, writer, consultant, and public speaker based in Treaty 1 Territory, the traditional and unceded territory of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the Homeland of the Métis Nation. After a decade as an Addiction Counsellor he transitioned into knowledge translation and project management in the mental health and addictions system, following his passion in shortening the “research-to-practice pipeline” for public services.

His clinical experience has been a valuable foundation for his current system-level focus. He has written successful grant proposals, conducted program evaluations, developed policy and practice guidelines, and managed projects spanning multiple service delivery organizations. He has created and delivered hundreds of hours of presentations to counsellors, hospital staff, medical students, social workers, and the public. Another project saw him take on a lead and evaluation role with a crisis services partnership. In 2020 Daniel created a community safety training for businesses and service providers facing challenging situations caused by methamphetamine use, a training that is now used in onboarding new staff for many organizations in the province. He has a strong interest in community capacity building, and for several years has written a mental health column for the local paper.

Daniel strives to be an empathic and good-humoured partner on every project. He holds a MSc in Psychology specializing in Applied Psychology, working to bring best practices and evidence-based approaches to all his work. He is a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and an associate member of the Canadian Society of Addictions Medicine.
