After 20 years of service, leadership and dedication, Anita Webb has retired as CMHA Kenora’s executive director. With Webb at the helm, CMHA Kenora grew from a small organization with 4 staff to having more than 30 today. During the last few years, the branch has served more than 700 clients annually and provided resources, training and mental health information to many more in the community and the Districts of Kenora and Rainy River.
Reflecting on her time at CMHA Kenora Branch, Webb said that supportive and caring boards of directors, dedicated and professional staff members, and the quiet courage and resilience of those experiencing mental illnesses are the elements that have sustained her tenure.
We wish Anita the best for her retirement and are thankful for all that she has done toward making mental health possible for all.
– Camille Quenneville, CMHA Ontario CEO
