A growing body of medical research highlighting the impact of mental illness, a greater understanding of its physiological origins and clearer evidence of its connection with physical health...all are cause for optimism in the fight for better mental
We are building on this optimism by investing in an area that is underfunded compared to other leading causes of illness and disability: the prevention and early detection of severe mental illness in adolescents and young people.
Since 2016, the Miner’s Lamp Award Campaign has raised $2 million for innovative studies at the Department of Psychiatry.
All costs for the Miner's Lamp Award Dinner are covered by IAMGOLD Corporation or in-kind donations,
so 100% of funds raised go directly into new research.
Now in its fourth year, the 2019 Miner’s Lamp Award Dinner will be held on Tuesday March 19 at The Carlu, Toronto.
The dinner brings together a memorable mix of influential, engaged Canadians from business and academia, accomplished individuals sharing their personal struggles with mental illness, and talented artists. With renewed hope, we celebrate progress and our shared commitment to improving mental health for generations to come.
Our 2018 event saw Dennis Trottier
, Chief Mental Health Officer, KPMG, Miner's Lamp Award recipient, George Cope
, President & CEO of BCE Inc
and Bell Canada
and founder of Bell Let's Talk, and distinguished Canadian athletes Clara Hughes
and Tie Domi
speak up for greater understanding of mental illness.
For the 2019 dinner, we are looking forward to another memorable evening, including:
· Presentation of the Miner’s Lamp Award to Margaret Trudeau
, celebrated Canadian mental health advocate, honouring a lifetime of personal and professional commitment to mental health
· Keynote address and musical perfomance by special guests
· An exclusive gathering of 500 leaders from Canada’s business and academic communities
· An opportunity to meet and speak with world-class scientists and leading clinicians
· A promotional contest with incredible prizes
