Stigma Enigma helps to raise over $127,000.00 for Maryvale through Margaret Trudeau Event

Stigma Enigma, headed by local Family Physician Patrick Smith, has announced that the organization has raised $127,185 from this year’s 3rd Annual event which was held in November of 2016.

The Annual Stigma Enigma event brings in a high profile guest speaker yearly, in order to raise awareness about mental health issues and to bring a familiar face to the subject helping to eliminate the stigma to talk about mental health and encouraging individuals to reach out for help in times of distress.

This last year’s event featured guest speaker Margaret Trudeau, who has faced challenges throughout her life dealing with Bipolar Disorder.  She spoke to a sold out crowd of over 800 at the Caboto Club this past November and her story was relatable, engaging, at times comical and extremely personal.

Connie Martin, Executive Director of Maryvale stated that “The influx of this enormous donation has allowed us to hire two full time therapists to significantly increase the number of teens seen who are currently waiting for counselling-which is a high demand area.  In excess of 100 teens that are currently in great distress will now be able to be counselled quickly.  These teens may otherwise have had to wait extended periods of time for counselling or fallen through the cracks.”

On behalf of the Stigma Enigma committee Dr Patrick Smith wants to relay to the community, “As mental healthcare remains underfunded and under serviced province wide, with no major funding improvement on the horizon, the Stigma Enigma committee is extremely appreciative of our  community’s tremendous understanding and support of this event and its cause.”

Stigma Enigma has also announced the date for their 2017 event- which will be Saturday November 11 at the Caboto Club of Windsor.  This year’s guest speaker will be four-time Olympian Silken Laumann, who is known as one of Canada’s most inspirational leaders, a bestselling author, and a highly recognizable and beloved athlete.  Tickets will go on sale in early August for this event.
