Tina Montreuil, a researcher and clinical psychologist with the Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses (PEPP-Montréal) at the Douglas Institute and one of the Foundation’s Young Ambassadors, was honoured twice this month.

Tina received a Champions of Mental Health Award from the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health and was named a finalist in the ARISTA competition organized by the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal.

The Champions of Mental Health Awards were handed out in the presence of the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, in Ottawa on May 6. This award recognizes the outstanding contribution of individuals and organizations to promoting mental health in Canada.

Tina was also nominated in the “young Quebec professional” category for the 2013 ARISTA competition organized by the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal.

“I am happy that the Douglas and mental health are being recognized in this way among Montreal's young business community,” she explained.

The Young Ambassadors are a group of committed young people aged 25 to 45. We put their time, energy, social networks – and neurons! – towards supporting the Douglas Institute Foundation.

The fact that Tina received such high honours in both of these prestigious categories is a testament to her achievements. The Foundation congratulates Tina on her well-merited success.
