Starting a brave conversation: Mental health and why it matters so much at Home Trust

Four years ago, we lost a father, a friend and a leader.

My father worked diligently with the Home Trust sales team, with a high standard for service excellence for his broker partners. He stood behind a gentle heart. He was known for his sense of humour and his thoughtful approach to leadership. He was strong, dedicated and focused. But most importantly, he was passionate.

Unlike many other illnesses, mental health can sometimes be an invisible wave that crashes over us. It’s a change in a colleague. It’s a loss of a loved one. It’s a tunnel that doesn’t appear to end. And above anything else, it’s a conversation that’s difficult to confront.

Four years later, On September 14th, 2016, Home Trust celebrated its fourth annual Tom Trenouth Charity Golf Tournament. This day is important to us because it allows us to start the brave conversation. It’s a day that we invite our business partners to join us to shed light on this worthy cause. And it’s a day we spend celebrating my dad’s life with his colleagues, friends, and his three children, Chelsea, Curran and I.

Our organization has taken steps forward to continue to support mental health and awareness. We understand the pressures of personal and professional life and have implemented an employee program to help support our staff.

Home Trust is proud to say that together with our mortgage brokers and business partners, we have donated $100,000 to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to further research and awareness. Over four years of running our event, The Tom Trenouth Charity Golf Tournament has raised over $325,000 that has been donated to charity.

On behalf of Home Trust, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our business partners for joining us at the tournament and helping us raise funds for mental health awareness and research. It’s such a remarkable realization to see a group of motivated professionals come together to achieve something great for our community. And I’m so happy to be a part of that.
