2018 LYNN MORRALL AWARD:

Lynn Morrall worked at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences as the Senior Occupation Therapist and the Chief Occupational Therapist. Together with other staff, Lynn worked to establish the Beaverton and Port Perry Mental Health Clinics. These clinics offered support to hospital outpatients by providing social/recreational activities, therapy groups, meetings with a psychiatrist and medication monitoring. Lynn believed in the value of volunteers and their contribution in providing support to clients living in the community. She was able to incorporate the use of volunteers into the Beaverton Clinic by developing C.I.V.P. (now COPE). Today, COPE still believes in the importance of volunteers for mental health support. The Lynn Morrall award honours a volunteer who has shown outstanding commitment to the COPE program, demonstrated through length of service and ongoing participation. In addition, they are a valuable resource to the client and are responsive to the needs of the program. They have shown outstanding interest in mental health issues and the rights of individuals, and possess a positive attitude towards wellness through recognition of an individual’s strengths and abilities.
