Paola Ardiles, Stephen Smith and the BC Medical Association
Paola Ardiles, Stephen Smith and the BC Medical Association are this year’s recipients of an award named for revered mental health advocate Dr. Nancy Hall, the Dr. Nancy Hall Public Policy Leadership Award. Each year the award recognizes individuals or organizations that have influenced mental health policy.
The three awards were presented on September 21 by Agnes Hall, Dr. Hall’s mother, and Judy Moore, Chair of Canadian Mental Health Association, BC Division’s (CMHA BC) Board of Directors, at their 59th Annual General Meeting in Vancouver.
“Like Dr. Nancy Hall, these are the unsung heroes for more complete and equitable mental health and additions care.” said Bev Gutray, CEO of CMHA BC. “Through their ongoing efforts, they are fighting to challenge the way we think about mental health and improve mental health for you, for me, and everyone in BC. CMHA BC is proud to work with and alongside them towards our vision of mentally healthy people in a healthy society.”| | | Next → |
