I first met Mary-Lou MacDonald in her role as CEO of AWARE-NS. She quickly became an important mentor and coach to me. She was the keynote speaker for our provincial executive symposium on Mental Health. She inspired and motivated leaders from across the province in a powerful call to action which will not be easily forgotten.

She is an undeniable agent of positive cultural change.
