Having family members share their specific experiences of the illness with each other - this was a powerful experience … and it was something that had not been done in the past, even though they had been living with mental illness in the family for many years.

Our strategic vision at the Mental Health Foundation is simple - to ensure Nova Scotians with mental illness are thriving in our communities. The ongoing commitment of our generous donors allows us to make that happen.

Through the pivotal support of the Keating family, Jack, Colin & Mickey MacDonald, Westwood Developments, and other community leaders, we’ve been able to improve the levels of training and education both in the hospital and in the community.

Pathways to Hope encompasses the Charles Keating Education Fund and the Welcome Home Fund.
