SEPTEMBER 18 2019
This prestigious event, which greatly contributes to breaking the taboos surrounding mental illness, will again bring together more than 800 guests around Fondation Jeunes en Tête, the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal Foundation and the Douglas Foundation.
More than three years ago, the Douglas Mental Health University Institute Foundation, together with the Mental Illness Foundation and the Foundation of the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal organised the largest event ever held for mental health in Quebec. More than 800 invitees gathered at the Bell Centre to state loud and clear the need the put an end to stigma and reiterate the importance of supporting three important foundations in Montreal which work, each in their own way, to support mental health.
Let’s mobilize for mental health!
Over the years, mental health has become a major societal issue. Companies’ awareness of and sensitivity to the impact of mental health is growing, and many are showing their commitment. Yet, much remains to be done to combat the stigmatization of mental illness. That is why we need to come together and continue to mobilize
This year, National Bank, Bell, CGI, the Canadians Hockey Club and Sun Life Financial have joined forces to raise funds for mental health. Join them at Bal des Lumières on September 18, 2019 to raise funds to support the Douglas Foundation and our partners, Fondation Jeunes en Tête and Fondation de l’Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal fighting to raise funds for mental health.
