The Zonta Club of Brampton-Caledon was honoured with the 2023 Caring Community Award presented by the CMHA (Canadian Mental Health Association) of Dufferin-Peel.

Over a couple of years, we donated $20,000 to support the publication of a resource listing all the community organizations and clubs that can help residents who struggle with mental health issues, and these brochures are available at all our shelters and ‘safe houses’. The risk of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use concerns, or becoming suicidal was three to five times higher for women who had experienced violence. Shelters and transition houses have reported that over half of women deal with major depression and over 33% deal with PTSD
