in this year, it has now been 10 years, that I am a member of the board of l’Éveil.
The mental health cause is very close to my heart. Having experience a less shining moment in my own life, while life was not a nice, I received help to get me out of the dark place. This is why I now involve myself with this team, whom I believe performing small miracles in their everyday actions.
A lover of nature and photography, I spend a great deal of time in the great outdoors. This nature so beautiful, alive, and real, it keeps me connected to all that is beautiful on the planet and in my environment. I would one day like to share this passion with people who no longer see this extraordinary beauty in their lives. Beauty, that in my opinion, fills the spaces more obscure that our souls.
My name is Marc Fugère and my career was in the Canadian Armed Forces for 32 years as an aviation technician. As part of my work I’ve been around the world. I retired in July 2012. The transition from military life to civilian life was difficult. It was at this time that I had used the services of l’Éveil. After several months, I volunteered to serve on the board while continuing to receive individual follow and I participate in workshops.
I am very happy that I was elected to the board of directors of L’Éveil. For me it is a way to implicate myself in a good cause, the cause of mental health is still not understood.
Without l’Éveil I do not know where I would be. The specialized caseworkers helped me. I’m not sure what is in store for the future of l’Éveil, I will do my best. I wish to thank l’Éveil, your team understood me, and offers me your time and love!
My contact with l’Éveil began in 2011 following serious family problems that we’re followed with major depression. I had the good fortune to begin an individual follow-up and I was able to discover the workshops that provided the necessary tools for my survival. I grew from this experience, proud of myself, more confident.
The cause of l’Éveil is close to my heart, I aspire to do my best to serve.
Please allow me to introduce myself, I am 41 years old and I live in Farnham. What brought me here? I do not really know, I am a native of Longueuil. What I do know is that everything happens for a reason in this life. One day I was really distressed, and I found a number, I discovered l’Éveil, an organisation that helps people.
After everything I have received I have decided it is time to give something back, I want to help others. With the knowledge and skills I now have, it is an honor for me to be a part of this mental health organisation.
