AMI-Quebec’s Board of Directors ensures that AMI’s mission is achieved. Most members have or have had a family member with mental illness or mental health issues, and some have professional experience in mental heath or related fields.
Board members are volunteers who believe that family engagement is critical to the eradication of the stigma that is still associated with mental illness, and to the promotion of a whole person view of people with mental illness. They trust that a more humane and compassionate society can help people with mental illness realize their potential and lead satisfying and fulfilling lives. The main focus of the Board’s work is to support families in their role as caregivers while helping them to sustain their own wellbeing.
The Board of Directors is elected each year during the Annual General Meeting in June. Candidates are reviewed by the Nominating Committee and submissions can be made throughout the year. Familiarity with AMI-Quebec’s work and previous experience (such as serving on a committee, attending or facilitating support groups, etc.) is recommended.
