THE DOUGLAS FOUNDATION’S YOUNG AMBASSADORS
HAVE THE FOLLOWING MISSION AND OBJECTIVES:
Support the Douglas Institute and its Foundation in their efforts to strengthen both fundamental and clinical research,
demystify mental illness and treat patients in need.
Encourage an open conversation about mental illness to ensure that those who suffer stop doing it in silence
and no longer hesitate to seek help.
Raise funds in support of the Douglas Foundation through a variety of events.
The Douglas Institute is a world-class Institute, affiliated with McGill University, which treats people suffering from mental illness and offers them hope and cure. It covers 63% of Quebec territory including the north of the province with special services for Crees and Inuits communities. Also, its Research Centre is the second most important of its kind in all of Canada.
The Douglas’ team of specialists and researchers continually advance scientific knowledge, integrate it into patient care and share it with the community to increase awareness and eliminate stigma surrounding mental illness.
The Douglas Foundation invests in projects that help us better understand and prevent mental illness. It supports the Douglas’ recognized expertise in: Alzheimer’s, depression and bipolar disorder, anorexia and bulimia, and youth services.
