Ginette Volpato, recent Grand Prize winner of the Victoria General Hospital's 50/50 Raffle, shares her personal story of coping with mental health issues and why supporting mental health initiatives help provide our community with the care and tools needed.
The mental health of our community is our top priority. On Bell Let's Talk Day, we reached out to healthcare professionals at The Vic and our community partner Artbeat Studio to share some practical tips on things you can do daily or weekly to help care for and improve your mental health.
As we approach the end of a cold winter, I find myself feeling thankful for the warmth of our community. I am in awe of the kind and caring spirit I have found in supporters like you since joining The Vic Foundation family last year.
Patients and families can easily share their thoughts and feelings at the touch of a button thanks to new real-time feedback kiosks at The Vic and ACCESS Fort Garry. Our investment in these innovative devices was made possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
The Vic Foundation and Victoria Lifeline partnered with local non-profits to deliver holiday gift bags to seniors in our community and at The Vic. Whether you are six or sixty, we all love receiving gifts during the holidays. But for many older adults in our community who are without family or friends nearby, or are unable to see their loved ones due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the reality of being alone during the holidays is palpable.
