We are so proud to share that our very own Dr. Kevin Young was awarded a 2021 Jane Chamberlain Award this past November. 

Jane Chamberlin is the former executive director of the Association of General Hospital Psychiatric Services (AGHPS). The award was created upon her death to recognize outstanding achievement in mental health relating to general hospitals / schedule 1’s in Ontario.

Recognizing that the COVID -19 pandemic has placed an unprecedented burden on professional and support staff, the AGHPS decided to recognize many people in 2021 who embody the spirit of the award – those who came through, persisted, inspired and innovated practice during an extended crisis. This criteria describes Dr. Young and his contributions perfectly.  

Dr. Sunderji Quote

In considering her nomination of Dr. Young, Dr. Nadiya Sunderji looked at his leadership in developing:

  • ways to mitigate response to the pandemic
  • innovative strategies to maintain or enhance care and service
  • efforts to support the lives and outcomes of those presenting to hospital with mental health issues
  • awareness, education, information that has made a difference to colleagues and/or patients and families
  • provincial, regional or organizational leadership in an area of practice.


Dr. Sunderji and Dr. Young attended a virtual celebration of the AGHPS 11th Leadership Summit event on November 5, 2021 where he was presented the award. Congratulations Dr. Kevin Young – we are so happy to have you as part of our Team!
