Radio Noon - Man receives award for raising awareness about mental health issues
Austen Mardon of Edmonton went out whale-watching in Bay Bulls earlier this week. But that's not why he's visiting Newfoundland and Labrador. He's getting a medal of honor from the Canadian Medical Association at their big conference in St. John's. It's for raising awareness about mental health issues, and for Austen Mardon, that comes from personal experience with schizophrenia.
