Dear Dr. Long:

On behalf of the members of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and the Mental Illness Awareness Week 1995 Coalition organizations: the Schizophrenia Society of Canada; the Depression and Manic Depression Association of Canada, the National Network for Mental Health and the Canadian Mental Health Association, I would like to present to you the CPA's Special Recognition Award for 1995.

The award is in expression of our appreciation for your outstanding leadership and dedicated contribution to the promotion of mental illness awareness, health services, research and education in 1995, in the past, and no doubt well into the future.

The award is presented annually as part of the Canadian Psychiatric Association's Mental Illness Awareness Week. Previous award winners include Nobel laureate Dr. Michael Smith, The Right Honourable Ramon John Hnatyshyn and Mrs. Gerda Hnatyshyn, and Mr. Bill Jefferies, founder of the Ontario Friends of Schizophrenics.

Your nomination was proposed to the Mental Illness Awareness Week 1995 Steering Committee by the Mood Disorders Association of British Columbia, and was wholeheartedly supported by the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society and the Canadian Mental Health Association's B.C. Division.

We hope you will display the award proudly. Thank you Dr. Long, keep up the good work, and good luck.

Sincerely yours,

Donald Wiedman
