The Dr. Nancy Hall Leadership Award is awarded annually to honour the late Dr. Nancy Hall, a passionate advocate for mental health who passed away in 2011 after a battle with cancer. The award recognizes an individual or group in British Columbia that has influenced mental health policy and contributed to positive mental health. This year’s winner was MDABC’s Medical Director, Dr. Ron Remick, and he was thrilled to accept the award at the Canadian Mental Health Association’s annual general meeting on September 25th, 2015. Dr. Remick was chosen as the recipient of this important award for his work in the development, implementation and delivery of the model of care which is now in operation at the MDABC and many other clinics across Canada. This innovative model ensures more rapid-access and more continuity of care for Canadians needing psychiatric interventions.

Dr Remick had the opportunity to work with Dr. Nancy Hall on mental health initiatives and was deeply touched to receive this recognition. He states, “While I was personally honored to receive such a prestigious award – what pleased and excited me even more was the fact that others are now recognizing the value and importance of the work we are doing at MDABC, and the meaningful changes that MDABC is making to our health care system by providing accessible psychiatric outpatient care.”
