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.
I am named Maryline Morneau, I am 51 years old and a mother of three ages 32, 29 and 28. I am a member of the board of the ‘le sac à mots’, so I know how everything works.
I have a mental illness and I am a user of the services of l’Éveil for a one year now, I am ready to give something back to others. It is my work to listen to the members, and I will focus on the rights of our members, in order to bring them pertinent information to this effect.
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.
I am Amanda, and I first came to L’eveil seeking help in 2013. I live in Abercorn, and it is my honor to be able to help the community that so helped me when I needed it. I am 30 years old, and I am Anglophone. I have seen many English-speaking neighbors leaving the province, unable to find their place, or services in their language. My goal on the board of directors is to aid in spreading the information that this service is most definitely here, especially in the Anglophone communities. They are not alone, and they deserve help too.
For many reasons the mental health cause is close to my heart, because we all know someone who is facing a struggle with mental health problems. We know these people live daily with many prejudices from the public about their condition. Too many people still do not understand mental illness and the suffering those affected must endure. As a board member I hope to contribute to making our members lives better.
