10 years ago was a life changing event for me; I became a volunteer at Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba. From that time to the present day I have marveled as I watched the organization grow and develop, helping people, lifting spirits and giving hope and healing where this did not seem possible. It has evolved into the solid leader of mental health peer support, education and advocacy that is unsurpassed in Manitoba today. Through policies of inclusivity and the tireless efforts of staff and volunteers who keep MDAM open 365 days a year, we are helping more families and communities in Manitoba than ever before. Read more here.
