We are saddened to learn of the passing of our founding Chair, Dr. Reva Gerstein. Dr. Gerstein was a remarkable woman who lived her life with compassion and respect for all humanity and the inherent dignity of each individual. She spent a lifetime working to give voice to those usually unheard by society. Her advocacy supported a community of people affected by mental health and poverty to speak up and gave rise to the establishment of community supports and services that seek to better the lives of those affected by mental health issues, including Gerstein Crisis Centre. We at Gerstein Centre will be forever grateful to Dr. Gerstein for all that she taught us and for instilling the values and vision that we work and live by.
