Pascale GaucherPrésidente


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 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 an ordinary person but I am a good listener and very attentive to others. My essence is empathy, my big heart and love of humans voila my contribution to l’Éveil.

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.

I am a passionate and hypersensitive woman. Which led me to go through many “hard times”. I had to rebuild myself several times, so I know how important it is to have help. L’Éveil is a place where we are welcomed without any judgment. They are a team of great people who perceive us as humans experiencing difficulties, but they also see beyond, they see our qualities and strengths. I felt that I was as valuable as anyone. They rely on our abilities and guide us in our journey towards balance while respecting our pace. I also met other people, and I feel at home with them. They became a family … I did not see what I had to offer, I saw only my difficulties and I felt like a burden for my entourage and for society. Life has led me to use my abilities and develop them. I discovered that some of my abilities were talents and to prevent me from diminishing these positive aspects of myself, I decided to call them my “super powers” … In hindsight, I can make sense of the hardships I have gone through. I chose to use it to help humans discover their strengths, abilities, talents and encourage them to develop them. We all have “super powers” in us. Just give yourself a chance to welcome them. ❤
