It is with much pride that we can announce that the American Women’s Club of Montreal will be presenting a check in the amount of $32,000 to The Montreal Children’s Hospital Department of Psychiatry
There’s No Place like “The Children’s”
This year the AWCM has elected to donate our proceeds to The Montreal Children’s Hospital-Department ofPsychiatry. Our donation to The Children’s Department of Psychiatry is in recognition of the tremendous increase in mental health challenges that young people are experiencing in their daily lives in Quebec. We have all read the headlines identifying teens and pre-teens who are struggling to cope with anxiety and depression. These young minds are too often discouraged by the stigma attached to mental health. Then these children often don’t seek medical help until it is too late. Our goal for the American Women’s Club of Montreal is twofold: to bring an awareness to the Montreal community about mental health care needs for children and to generate financial support for the medical facilities and caregivers who help these children. Our 2019 event There’s No Place like “The Children’s” will feature an evening in OZ. It will be an informal event celebrating the classical fantasy movie “The Wizard of Oz” and the children’s book by L. Frank Baum. Our theme for the evening is making sure all children who face mental health issues receive the best of care so that they can become healthy enough to return home.
