Toronto, Ontario. January 6th 2009 - The Dream Team invites friends and supporters to visit its newly designed website.

About the Dream Team:
The Dream Team is a group of men and women who live with mental health issues, their family members and other users of supportive housing. Many Dream Team members have been homeless at an earlier point in their lives. Over the last ten years member of the Dream Team have come together through involvement in their own housing to create a member-driven organization. Together they emphasize the life-altering benefits of supportive housing, advocate for more supportive housing and challenge stigma related to mental health. They do this by telling their individual stories and making presentations to politicians, community groups, schools, faith groups and other institutions.
Mantis CMS as concept started in the year 2000 by a company called c-Seven Media who were a group of young web designers that liked building web sites, but didn't enjoy the ongoing text changes and minor revisions that would fill up their days. They realized that giving their customers control over their content would make them happier as they could update it themselves, and made c-Seven happier because we they focus on designing sites and building more cms tools. Mantis has grown from just a simple text editor to a full suite of content management tools and is being recognized as the CMS product of choice by companies like Metroland Media Group, SBC Media, and the Girl Guides of Canada.
