Helping people
help themselves.

The Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba is a self-help organization dedicated to providing support, education and advocacy for those living with mental health illnesses.


We regret to announce our In the Mood Gala, scheduled for March 19, 2022, is postponed until further notice.

The impact of Coronavirus has been unlike anything any of us have ever experienced.
The changing nature and spread of Coronavirus, along with its variants is unprecedented.
To minimize the potential risk to our staff and volunteers, patrons, and sponsors,
we felt it was prudent to postpone our In the Mood Gala this year.

Please stay tuned for updates regarding a new date and time.

Thank you for your patience and support.

We at Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba are saddened by the horrific discovery of 215 children’s graves at a former BC Residential School. Many more children went missing and unaccounted for as this was only one of over 130 Residential Schools and many “Day Schools” that operated with similar practices. Our deepest sympathy goes to the First Nations peoples for the suffering they have endured, and the loss of their ancestors and loved ones from injustices forced upon them.   

This discovery sheds much needed light on the actual origins of the trauma-related mental health and addiction issues, experienced by many First Nations people today. The Truth and Reconciliation Report outlines so much more and is available online

We believe this is not a time for the outside world to offer opinions; it is a time for us to come together and to listen with humility, compassion and understanding to what First Nations people need us to do, to help heal the trauma and improve their lives. 

At Mood Disorders we are committed to helping however we can. We believe that support for mental health is essential for overall health and healing. We are working to reduce the stigma of mental health and addictions issues through our programs offering education, advocacy, and peer support. We believe compassion and kindness are the first steps on the path to recovery. 

May all people come together to share the burden of this grief, and going forward, to share the healing and rebuilding of better, stronger communities with First Nations as respected partners.
