Barb was Outreach manager for Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba in Central Region for many years.
Those that knew her best, understood that in spite of her own mental health struggles she was committed to helping others.
Barb worked for MDAM but also put in many extra hours of work to help others on their journey to hope and recovery.
On behalf of MDAM, we thank Barb for her many years of service helping others, and send our prayers out to her and those who love her.
Pamela Mann, Board Chair, MDAM

To the family of Barb Bogart. Please accept our sincere condolences on your loss. I was proud to be part of the MDAM rural sisterhood. Barb worked tirelessly and without complaint with those struggling with mental health issues. Her empathy, openness and honesty and of course her " tech" skills will be missed by many. RIP my friend.

Barb was my younger sister, she was 3rd in our family of 6. If you knew her, you would love her. She was brilliant, caring, honest, and had a heart of gold and we all loved her. We are just numb because she is gone but mostly we are sad. She became estranged from her family few years ago and she found her “healing family” in the Carman area. She could relate and emphasize with anyone that was hurting. She wouldn’t accept help from anyone but she would be the first one to offer help. It gives us so much comfort knowing she was with people that she loved. And in talking with some of her friends we know she was hurting physically and mentally but she pushed on to help. We “lost” her from family about 7 years ago, not our choice and we are left with so many unanswered questions. Hug your family. Once they are gone you can’t.

Barb was my younger sister, she was the third child in our family of six. Barb was brilliant, caring, and was an expert on many topics. And we loved her. She battled with health issues, physically and mentally throughout her life but she pushed on. But life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to. She became estranged from family about 7 years ago and we lost all contact. In conversations with friends and coworkers, she was loved. And her work was important to her and she excelled at it. And that gives us so much comfort knowing she had surrounded herself with people that loved and respected her. Thank you to all of her friends for being there for her. Hug your family. Once they are gone there are no second chances.

My heart skipped a beat today when I just read this news. Barb was of great help to me when I was feeling lost in depression. I attended the group meetings in Winkler. She cared about each participant, and gave us techniques to cope. She knew my days were difficult and even gave me her phone number to call day or night. She was a great blessing to me. Her laugh and kindness will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Barb. ❤️
