Message from Board Chair, Pamela Mann
It is with great sadness that we announce that Barb Bogart has passed away. Barb was our Outreach manager in Central Region for many years.
Those that knew her best, understood that in spite of her own mental health struggles she was committed to helping others.
Barb worked for MDAM but also put in many extra hours of work to help others on their journey to hope and recovery.
Barb had been ill with pneumonia and we received word that she died on Friday February 28.
The website for the funeral home is:
The website says there will be no service, but there is a place on the website to write a tribute or send a message of condolence.
On behalf of MDAM, we thank Barb for her many years of service helping others, and send our prayers out to her and those who love her.

We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
