Momentum Mental Health Awards

View our past award winners

Momentum Counselling hosted the MMHAs in 2018 and 2019, Edmonton’s largest celebration of the mental health community. The MMHAs celebrate the mental health community by recognizing both individuals and organizations who have championed mental health initiatives, advocacy efforts and are making a difference in our community. This year, we planned to host the MMHAs at the Fantasyland Hotel on October 6, 2022. Unfortunately there was not enough interest to make it viable this year. We will be honouring each nominee on our social media platforms in October.

This is particularly disappointing as the MMHAs were Momentum’s main fundraiser, with all proceeds going towards supporting accessible, affordable counselling and support groups. After a long two years of waiting out the pandemic, we were so excited for October 2022. Fortunately, we are confident our generous community will continue to support the work we do through new, innovative means. Stay tuned!

Congratulations to our 2019 Momentum Mental Health Award Winners!

While the struggle with mental health issues can often be lonely, the path to improving mental health services and removing the stigma is a team effort.
