Sandra is one of this year's FACES

The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) celebrates their tenth year of the Faces of Mental Illness Campaign and announces this year's Faces. In a recent press release, they stated they received 90 nominations and selected five Canadians who will participate in the campaign to reduce stigma and raise awareness.

Here's a list of the chosen Faces:

Sandra Yuen MacKay of Vancouver, British Columbia
Alicia Raimundo of Pickering, Ontario
Dustin Garron of Renfrew, Ontario
Laurie Pinard of Ottawa, Ontario
Chantal Poitras of Fredericton, New Brunswick

I am the only one from Western Canada. It's a great honour to be recognized and to have the opportunity to spread hope and inspire others.
