MP Jowhari named 2018 Parliamentary Mental Health Champion

 

On May 8, I was honoured to be named this year’s Parliamentary Mental Health Champion by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH). The Champions of Mental Health Awards are a key component of CAMIMH’s annual awareness campaigns and are made possible through the generous support of presenting sponsor Bell Let’s Talk.

It was a privilege to be recognized by CAMIMH, joined by the Minister of Health, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, alongside other Champions representing youth, media, and research – staunch advocates for mental health who work across our country.

There is always more to be done, and I will continue to champion this cause in Parliament and in my community of Richmond Hill. I’ve committed to ending the stigma, raising the issue in Parliament, and advocating for a new paradigm that will bring our mental health services into line with the healthcare standards Canadians across the country take pride in.
