Lynn Keane’s Keynote Address Inspires Hope, Understanding and Meaningful Action, Event Raises $65,000 for St. Joe’s Mental Health and Addictions Programs
Thank you to everyone who joined us earlier today for A Mental Health Morning – presented by ArcelorMittal Dofasco. With thanks to the support of our guests, sponsors and speakers, today’s event raised $65,000 for mental health and addictions care at St. Joe’s.
This year’s event featured author, tri-athlete and former broadcast journalist, Lynn Keane, sharing her story of love, loss, understanding and resilience following the death of her son, Daniel, by suicide in 2009. We are so grateful to Lynn for courageously sharing Daniel’s story with us and urging our community to continue having these open conversations, to reduce the stigma around mood disorders and spark hope for those struggling with mental illness.
Thank you to our Mental Health and Addictions team who were on-site at the event to provide support and resources for those in need. To access mental health information and resources, please visit the Hospital’s website.
Our Foundation would also like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2023 Spirit of Hope Award winners. Each year, these awards honour the individuals and organizations in our community who are making impactful contributions to the fields of mental health and addictions care and research, or those who are actively working to reduce the stigma and shame that too often surrounds mental illness and substance use. This year’s winners are:
