MAD ABOUT MARGARET’S
Mental illness is a complex problem - it is interwoven with homelessness, marginalization, trauma, addiction, and isolation. To help women in Toronto living with mental illness, we need a wicked solution. That solution is Margaret’s and on Thursday April 11, 2019, you can support Margaret’s work to alleviate the pain and suffering that mental illness creates for the women in our communities. Please join us at the 7th Annual Mad About Margaret’s Fundraising Gala. Please know that the proceeds from this event will go toward providing women in Toronto with the dignified housing and support services they deserve.
IN GOOD COMPANY
Past keynote speakers, including the likes of Silken Laumann, Margaret Trudeau and Mary Walsh, have delivered uplifting personal stories of their own struggles with mental health and the associated stigma as well as their journeys of recovery and wellness.
An annual celebration of the victories of women living with mental illness, Mad About Margaret’s is an inspirational evening that culminates with the presentation of the Margaret Trudeau Mental Health Advocacy Award, which recognizes an outstanding individual who has worked tirelessly to reduce the stigma and improve the dialogue around mental illness. Margaret Trudeau inaugurated the first award during the 5th annual Mad About Margaret's event in October 2016. The first recipient of the award was the Host and producer of CBC Radio One’s, The Next Chapter, Shelagh Rogers. At last years dinner, Margaret’s was proud to honour 6-time Juno Award winner, Serena Ryder. Please stay tuned, as this year’s amazing and well-deserving award winner (and fellow Juno Award winner) will be announced right here in early March!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SCULPTURE
Meet the artist behind the sculptural Margaret Trudeau Mental Health Advocacy Award. Mr. Gustin Keser is a Dutch Canadian sculptor, whose work 'Tendresse' is expressing the tender moment of vulnerability, which develops the transparency for transformation. This same tenderness radiates in all of us to support the goals and work at Margaret's.
