Boost to Mental Health Programs for Children and Youth

June 12, 2015

Supports and services for children and youth living with complex and serious mental illness have received a funding boost from the annual Roger Anderson Charity Classic Golf Tournament.

Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health (Ontario Shores Foundation) is excited to be a beneficiary of the 18th charity classic golf tournament, which has surpassed $5 million in funds raised to support local initiatives.

“Support like this, from our community demonstrates commitment to creating opportunities for young people living with mental illness.  We are particularly pleased that the Roger Anderson Charity Classic, through their contribution, is creating initiatives that benefit children and young people helped at Ontario Shores,” says Linda Henry, Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Shores Foundation. 

“This gift will play a significant role in enabling us to continue offering recovery based care to children living with mental illness and their families. Mental illness in children and youth can interfere with their family life as well as their educational, recreational and vocational activities. This help means greater opportunity for successful outcomes as they navigate their journey of recovery,” says Karim Mamdani, President and CEO at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.

Ontario Shores Foundation is proud to be a part of such a premier event and thanks the Roger Anderson Charity Classic Golf Tournament for their inclusion in an extremely successful event and looks forward to a continued relationship benefitting children and youth.
