On October 5, 2015, the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health held its 8th Annual Leaders for Mental Health Breakfast. More than $3. 2 million has been raised for The Royal through these events, and the increase in awareness of mental illness and mental health has been extraordinary! Last year’s breakfast raised over $415,000 and this year’s event was absolutely sold out – with 629 guests confirmed it was Foundation’s biggest year ever! The Royal’s goal is simple – to raise funds for research and patient care with a view to get more people into recovery faster, and to raise awareness and inspire our community to get engaged in advancing the cause of mental health.
RavenLaw lawyer, Ella Forbes-Chilibeck, supported this year’s breakfast as an Organizer and Table Captain. Of the past seven breakfasts, Ella has been involved in the most recent four. RavenLaw is pleased to play a small part in making The Royal’s goals a reality.
