Demonstrating equal parts conviction and compassion, her transformational leadership has been recognized by the Canadian Psychological Association (Humanitarian Award, 2017), by the Canadian College of Health Leaders (Innovation Award, 2015) and by institutes of higher learning (Honorary Doctorates, Saint Mary’s University and University of Alberta). In June 2019, Ms. Bradley was invested as a member of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honour, for her contributions to advancing mental health care for Canadians.
