Women and Wellness

On March 10, 2015, the Kingston Branch of CMHA hosted Women and Wellness®, an evening fundraiser where women of all ages and backgrounds shared touching stories, and raised money to do something meaningful about mental health.  Funds raised will be used to offer a women’s peer support group.

Thank you to everyone who attended this event, to our volunteers and organizers.

 Thank you to our sponsors, supporters and the many businesses
and individuals who donated auction items.

The keynote speaker was Rona Maynard, former editor of Canada’s leading woman’s magazine, Chatelaine.  During her ten-year leadership at Chatelaine she became renowned for the honesty of her editorials in which she shared openly her life-long struggle with depression.
Rona Maynard is living proof that a history of mental illness is not a barrier to a successful and happy life.  Meet Rona Maynard HERE.
