John Tory, Mayor of Toronto, speaks at A Night to Shine Bright on September 9th, 2016.

On September 9th, over 300 youth and families in our community attended “A Night to Shine Bright” – The Maddie Project’s semi-formal evening designed to improve awareness and understanding of the unique challenges around youth mental health.

Special guest, Mayor John Tory, spoke about the importance of raising awareness about mental health in our community, commending North York General and The Maddie Project for the incredible work both organizations are doing.

An incredible $165,000 was raised through this event to support mental health care services at North York General, including the fully donor-funded redevelopment of the historic Phillips House into a leading-edge outpatient mental health care facility for women, children and youth.
