INTRODUCTION

The Caring Awards are celebrating Mental Health Hero’s in Saskatchewan whose leadership has raised awareness and provided interventions for the vulnerable people in their communities, in the province, country or internationally. Winners and runners up from the four Caring Award categories will be featured and a winner chosen in each category.  Platinum Sponsors will present the$1000 cheques and the awards to the winners.

  • Youth Caring Award
  • Wind Beneath Your Wings {Caring in a Supporting Role}
  • Community Caring Award
  • Leadership Caring Award

Every year in Saskatchewan, more than 220,000 people experience an emotional crisis that requires professional mental health support.  This rate has doubled over the past 20 years for the general population and multiplied 8 times in children and youth.  However, less than 20% of people ever get the help they need because of the stigma of mental health and costs of support. Celebrating Caring Hero’s is one way to raise awareness of the excellent work happening throughout the province, and provide each winner with a $1000 award for their project. The high-profile leadership awards evening features the Humboldt Broncos’ leadership team as the keynote speakers.  The Humboldt Broncos’ 2018 bus tragedy illuminated the need for mental health supports AND highlighted the importance of strong leaders who are prepared to address the needs of people struggling with grief, fear, loneliness and depression.  The Humboldt Broncos’ leadership team will share their leadership journey with us and answer your questions about how we can better prepare ourselves for unforeseen leadership challenges. Funds raised through this event will go to support a community initiative that will help thousands of people each year receive the mental health support they need – a new Capital Campaign to erect “The House that Caring Built.” It will encompass counselling, addiction support, depression and anxiety support groups, Expressive Art Therapy and Healing Circles, and specialized programing for children and youth – helping The Caring Place expand their charitable services to all persons based on their ability to pay, always with the motto that “together we will find a way back to purpose, passion and joy.” The Caring Place – winner of the 2019 Consumer Choice Awards in Counselling – has provided mental health and addiction counselling, artistic expression, free drop-in Art and Chat and Depression and Anxiety Group Sessions and Corporate Empowerment Training for over 28 years, helping over 5000 persons a year get professional help to navigate personal grief, loneliness, depression, anxiety, fear or conflict.
