Children and youth mental health is certainly a critical factor in the success of our society. I am involved to ensure that they have access to the resources available to them.

Mental illness affects all of us at some point in our lives. I have decided to get involved with the Foundation to actively participate to raise awareness.

Because mental health is not only the absence of mental disorders but a state of well-being through which we can fully accomplish ourselves as individuals. It is therefore essential to talk about it and eliminate the stigma associated with it. Together, let’s support research to help us better understand our mental health.

Maxime Dorais

Senior Principal
Fiera Comox Partners Inc.
Mental illness affects all of us directly or indirectly. Over the years, I have seen many people very close to my heart who have suffered, and I believe it’s essential to raise awareness and provide the necessary support to help the people affected.


Jérôme Dussault

Much effort remains to be done in changing our society’s opinion of mental health. The subject is complex, suffering is often invisible and unique to everyone who suffers from it. I am proud to contribute with the Foundation in the hope that soon our society will be comfortable talking about mental health as openly as other aspects of health in general.

Leyla Duranceau

Accounting Consultant
Almost 10 years ago, my father left us. He fought against depression all his life and he finally lost his battle. That’s why I became involved with the Fondation de l’Institut Universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal, which raises funds to support people with mental health issues. I sincerely believe that, by talking about these problems and working together to demystify those prejudices, people will be more inclined to seek help and we can save more lives.

Marie-France Marin

Researcher and Professor
Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal
The fight against stigma requires education and awareness. I am involved so that anyone suffering a mental health disorder at some point in their life is not afraid to break the silence and seek help.

Jessica Trudeau

Director of Strategic Initiatives and Marketing
TriNmax inc.
Although mental health disorders are less taboo than they were 10 years ago, many people with mental health problems are still stigmatized, judged and isolated. And so are their loved ones. I myself was a sufferer of generalized anxiety throughout my adolescence. Today, I want to contribute to the cause and raise awareness among the people around me by getting involved in an organization that makes a difference!
