We all know and love someone who is affect by a mental illness. 1 in 5 Canadian's are. I, myself am included in this. For over 5 years I had a piece of me that no one knew about. I was struggling with an eating disorder that was slowly taking over my life. Too ashamed to talk about what was happeneing to me and to terrified to ask for help.
For our third year, UR Enough is participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the STWM in support of CAMH. Our fundraising goal is to help transform how our communities think about mental health and other stigmatized states. The work that CAMH is doing essential. Together we can come together and ensure that mental illness gets the same priority as other illnesses.
I am running for my younger self. I am running for all those who feel like there is something wrong with them, for all those who feel like they aren't enough. Because, you, just they way you are in this very moment, you are more than enough.
No donation is too small.
Lots of Love, Mandi
