Organizational Description: was established to help educate and create awareness surrounding mental health issues and suicide.

We are a grassroots organization that partners with other agencies in order to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

Our goal is to become a foundation that continues to make a difference in how people perceive mental illness, and to increase public awareness of available resources and effective treatment.

Our Big Fundraising Event and Current Projects's big annual event is our Andrew Dunn Walk/Run, held each year on the Saturday before Mother's Day in Oakbank, Manitoba.

We support several mental health educational and awareness events including the Putting a Face to Suicide Conference, through our partnership with the Health Sciences Centre and the National Mental Health Conference, through our close working partnership with the Mood Disorders Association. Both of these important mental health events are held in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The organization also supports and presents two annual awards to deserving students; one is a good citizen award to a student at Royal Elementary School in Charleswood, Manitoba and the other is presented to a student upon graduation from Springfield Collegiate Institute in Oakbank, Manitoba, with special consideration given to furthering their education in the area of mental healt
