A Dollar A Day for youth mental health: Our day with the MHCC's HEADSTRONG Team

On February 22, co-founder and Dollar-A-Dayer Alan Doyle made a visit to Calgary, Alberta, home to the Mental Health Commission of Canada's (MHCC) HEADSTRONG program. There, Alan met with representatives of the MHCC, including Program Coordinator Fiona Haynes, Romie Christie, Manager of Opening Minds and MHCC President and CEO Louise Bradley, to learn more about their upcoming plans for 2019.

Throughout the day, Alan had an opportunity to meet with student representatives Daisy, Alex and Morgan who have participated in HEADSTRONG and are now speakers and ambassadors for this program. Thank you to everyone for sharing their personal stories and the impact of HEADSTRONG!

During the visit, Alan presented a cheque to Louise Bradley in support of the HEADSTRONG program on behalf of all Dollar-A-Dayers, and we are pleased to announce that we will be supporting them again in the coming year, all made possible by our donors. You can read more in our Press Release.

Alan also joined the team from Rogers Media for an interview with Breakfast Television Calgary, as well as interviews with Jack 96.9, CHFM 95.9 and 660 News radio. It was a great day and we want to thank everyone at Rogers for helping us spread the A Dollar A Day Foundation's message, and raise awareness of the important work the MHCC HEADSTRONG program is doing across Canada.

Letter: A dollar a day for youth mental health

Recently, Louise Bradley, President and CEO of the Mental Health Commission of Canada and our very own Alan Doyle, co-authored a piece in the St. John's newspaper The Telegram.

" Even though we’re both from Newfoundland and Labrador, you might think that’s where the similarities end, since one of us is a musician-songwriter and the other is president and CEO of a pan-Canadian mental health organization. But beyond our hometown roots, we share the belief in the power of stories to offer hope and healing."

We hope you will take a minute to read this article in The Telegram
