Toronto Military Family Resource Centre receives first award from million dollar Fund

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Bell True Patriot Love Fund today announced its first grant in support of mental health initiatives for Canadian military families.

Bell Let's Talk and the True Patriot Love Foundation presented a $20,000 grant to the local Toronto Military Family Resource Centre to support the Dynamic Military Family Workshop. Focusing on the challenges specific to military life, this series of mental health events offered to military members and their families will promote mental well-being and help families cope with the unique stressors of daily military life.

"Bell Let's Talk is very pleased to present the first Bell True Patriot Love Fund grant to the Toronto Military Family Resource Centre," said Mary Deacon, Chair of  Bell Let's Talk."These grants will help provide access to mental health care for military families when they need it, and we look forward to extending our support alongside True Patriot Love to military families across the country."

Bell and True Patriot Love are matching funds for the program. Starting this year and through 2016, the Bell True Patriot Love Fund will distribute $250,000 annually in grants of $5,000 to $25,000. It will support programs delivered through Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs) that focus on improving access to mental health care on Canadian Forces Bases across the country, often in remote locations.

"I have seen firsthand the incredible work and support that the Military Family Resource Centres provide for military members and their families from coast to coast," said True Patriot Love Vice Chair Michael Burns. "Bell and True Patriot Love are committed to providing funding to these Centres so that they are able to continue to provide high-quality mental health programming to as many families as possible."

The Executive Director of the Military Family Resource Centre, Cathy Turalinski, expressed her sincere thanks to Bell and True Patriot Love for their commitment. "In my position, I see hundreds of families who have mental health and wellness needs that are not otherwise funded. The contribution that the Bell TPL Fund provides for MFRCs like ours is integral to our ability to provide the best possible support for military families in our community."

About True Patriot Love: True Patriot Love honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Forces, Veterans and their families by:

  • Stepping in where government is unable to fund programs that support their physical, mental and social wellbeing no matter where they are posted in Canada or abroad
  • Promoting their special skills and capabilities resulting from their unique conditions of service
  • Being a channel for everyday Canadians, corporations and philanthropists to express their appreciation and patriotism

Over the past three years, True Patriot Love was honoured to have raised over $15 million to fund a variety of military programs, charities and causes, when and where it is needed most. Our three key areas of support are Family Health and Support, Physical Health and Rehabilitation and Mental Health and Well-Being.
