CEO Dan Goodyear Resigns

(St. John’s, NL) — Canadian Mental Health Association Newfoundland and Labrador Division (CMHA-NL) CEO Dan Goodyear has resigned after three years with the organization.

“We are very sad to see him go,” said CMHA-NL Board of Directors President Donna Kavanagh. “Dan has been beyond generous with the time he has given to our mission and mandate. His creativity, enthusiasm and dedication are to be commended. We thank him for the tremendous effort he has made. Our organization is stronger because of him. We wish Dan every future success.”

During his time with CMHA-NL, Goodyear championed the promotion of mental health for all and was diligent in his advocacy efforts, building and strengthening partnerships, raising funds, and increasing the profile of the organization across the province. He has been visionary in assessing needs and working to expand CMHA-NL’s range of education and awareness activities, especially in the areas of promotion and prevention, and developing programming for youth and young adults.

In an informal ceremony at CMHA-NL’s Head Office, Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Chief Joe Boland thanked Goodyear for his hard work on behalf of the RNC and the community as a whole. Goodyear was presented with a parting gift as Boland stressed the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with CMHA-NL and similar organizations in a continued effort to build safe and healthy communities for everyone.
