Mental illness

Hope lies in a better understanding of mental illness.

The Douglas builds hope for everyone who suffers from mental health problems.

Youth Mental Health

Without help from the Douglas, Martin wouldn’t have been able to manage his bipolar disorder. Mental health problems are particularly tragic because they often start at a young age.

Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia

Watching Henri fade away was an extremely painful experience for Denis Richard and his extended family, as well as for the millions of Canadians who lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Mood Disorders

Marie-Hélène’s husband lived life to its fullest. Tragically, suicide became his solution to eliminate the pain caused by his bipolar disorder.”

Eating Disorders

Magalie has long suffered from mental health problems. Her inner struggle went largely unnoticed until her body spoke out for her. Eating disorders are much more than just a matter of weight.

Psychotic Disorders

Michel’s mother has been affected by schizophrenia since he was a child. This severe psychotic disorder alters perceptions, behavior and the personality of people that suffer from it.

Every action we take today alleviates suffering and builds hope for tomorrow.
