From now until Friday, May 10th, I’m preparing for this years #OneBraveNight in support of mental health! Once again I'm honoured to have a beautiful team standing up and staying up with me in support of mental health. This year My Beautiful Mind proud to partner with Hope and Healing Counselling.
"My beautiful mind...believe it or not is a difficult statement for some people to believe about themselves, not because they don't want to but because their mind continuously fights them on thinking any differently. Mental illness does not discriminate, whether your male or female, black or white, gay or straight, it can affect anyone. I've done a lot of thinking in 2018, and with the world we live in today I think it's important to know that below our hair, skin, freckles or zits, we all have bones and we ALL have a beautiful mind protected by these bones. We must be mindful to the fact that we're not all that different from our neighbours, and it's time we started treating one another with more kindness.
I suffer from depression and anxiety, and I truly struggle with self love and self care each and everyday. While some days are better then others, I'm here staring my mental illness boldly in the face, in hopes that my story, my journey and even my own fears will be that constant reminder that we are never alone. It can sometimes feel like the darkness will consume us forever, but we're stronger then we know, and we are stronger together. So join me on my journey, and join My Beautiful Mind as we navigate through the ups and downs of mental health. In order to see changes happen for the better in our mental health care systems, we need our voices to be heard. My Beautiful Mind is hear to be heard..

CAMH One Brave Night is a chance to share a piece of myself with the world for a great cause. I am excited (and a bit nervous!) to express my passion and creativity, so we can inspire hope for the one in five Canadians who experience mental illness every year.
Please donate today and help me reach my fundraising goal.
Together we will break down stigma, fund innovative research, and provide access to new and promising treatments for people living with mental illness.
