Women for Mental Health at The Royal


The Women for Mental Health initiative is a network of women from all corners of our community, uniting to ignite dialogues, extend support, and pave the way for enhanced mental health and substance use health at The Royal.

Our mission is clear: empower and uplift those touched by mental illness. Women for Mental Health aims to create a groundswell of support for mental health through the engagement and empowerment of women. Through their philanthropy, these women help transform lives by supporting mental health and substance use health care and research. 

How Women for Mental Health support The Royal

Women for Mental Health are catalysts for change. Through their engagement and advocacy, they support The Royal's bold vision of providing expert care to those who need it when they need it. 

These women are helping us make progress by destigmatizing the subject and supporting advancements in research and care; creating a world where mental health is health.

The Royal is incredibly grateful to the members of Women for Mental Health for their support and commitment to raising funds and awareness, reducing stigma, and advocating for mental well-being in our community.
