Impact Partners With Corporate Sponsors to Host Successful Gala in Support of Mental Health
Impact Public Affairs has long worked with clients in the healthcare field, and when the opportunity arose to partner with one of the most high profile mental health organizations in the country, we grabbed the chance. The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) is a volunteer run alliance consisting of many organizations within the mental health continuum in Canada. CAMIMH operates thanks to the generous funding by major corporate sponsors. Impact Public Affairs joined the campaign in 2012 as a key sponsor alongside Bell, RBC Foundation, Rx&D, Janssen and Eli Lilly. Impact provides event planning services and contributes to raising the profile of CAMIMH within the private and public sectors. To learn more about CAMIMH, please visit: www.camimh.ca.
Impact organizes CAMIMH’s annual Champions of Mental Health Awards gala and Faces of Mental Illness campaign. Both campaigns earn national media attention from outlets such as Canada AM, Macleans, PowerPlay and many more. These campaigns continue to have dramatic effects in increasing awareness about the epidemic of mental illness in Canada and the stigma that surrounds it. CAMIMH continues to leverage the support of major corporations with investment in the mental health community to address these concerns. Not only does Impact help source and manage these critical relationships, they also seek new ways to strengthen the shared interests of both parties.
