OTTAWA, May 4, 2020 – Today, the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) unveiled the recipients of the 2020 Champions of Mental Health Awards.
Each year during Mental Health Week, CAMIMH recognizes seven Canadians and organizations whose work has advanced the mental health agenda across the country. These remarkable champions were nominated by their peers, colleagues and community members.
“At a time when our country and the world is faced with a crisis, it’s important to recognize the great work Canadians do year round to support their communities,” said Florence Budden, CAMIMH Co-Chair. “The 2020 Champions’ significant contributions to mental health is inspiring and we look forward to their continued positive action to help Canadians across the country.”
This year, due to COVID-19, we are celebrating the 2020 Champions through our digital platforms during Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is “social connection”, asking Canadians to #GetReal about how they feel.
