A Tribute to Lorne Fraser
Celebrating the contributions of the visionary behind the Lorne Fraser Educational Fund
Celebrating Our Champions
Our work is made stronger by the everyday heroes who show up to help us. Each person or organization has their own story that motivates them to reach out to others, reduce stigma and speak up for mental health and substance use services. We’ll hear from three who have stepped up personally to champion mental health.
