The QCH’s Hopes Rising campaign is a $5 million initiative to improve mental healthcare in Ottawa. Due to an unrelenting increase in the number of adults of all ages requiring acute mental health services, QCH’s Mental Health Program urgently needs to transform its space and the care it delivers to meet the needs of our community. For more information on the QCH Foundation and this very important fundraising initiative, please visit

Mental health will likely affect all of us at some point during our lifetimes. Please support my fundraiser and help ensure we have the facilities required to serve our community.
