Mental Health Advocate Pat Capponi Spoke Out for Marginalized People


From The Globe and Mail: “Ms. Capponi believed that people with lived experience should have a seat at the table on matters that concerned them – and, through leadership programs she launched and ran, taught ‘her folks’ to sit on the boards of institutions and take an active role in shaping policy. ‘I was continually surprised by the degree of resistance to the notion that we – those directly affected – should have more of a say in how we are housed and treated,’ she wrote.”
