As someone who suffers from mental illness, and has watched someone close to me suffer, I know how much of a difference even one conversation can make.
A common symptom of most mental illnesses is the feeling of isolation and loneliness. Compounding that symptom, is the still prevalent stigma around mental illness. If we can come together on One Brave Night for Mental Health and open even one person's mind to what it means to suffer from a mental illness, and the validity and seriousness of these illnesses, then we will have succeeded!
That's why I am stepping up to defeat mental illness!
The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for Canadians living with mental illness.
By making a donation to my One Brave Night, you are helping CAMH improve access to care, conduct research to find better treatments, and build more spaces for healing.
This is our chance to step up! Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal.
