On April 6, I’ll be stepping up – and staying up – to raise awareness for mental health and illness.
After a successful campaign last year, I am once again a proud participant of Team CIBC for CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health(TM), a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for the one in five Canadian who experience mental illness in any given year. I have been that person. As a teenager, I suffered from depression and anxiety for over 2 years. I fought it and I healed. Not everyone has that opportunity.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now – and to defeat 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.
Stepping up is my way of inspiring hope.
This is your chance to step up! Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal.
