From now until the end of the month, I’m showcasing my hidden talent in support of mental health!
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.
This mission means a lot to me personally as I continue to struggle with my own mental health illnesses. I've come to find out Mental Health programs are far and few between as they are incredibly underfunded and the individuals suffering continues to climb rapidly. This in turn, has created a demand they are unable to keep up with leading to longer wait times for programs and time is of the essence and can cost lives in some cases. Together we will break down stigma, fund innovative research, and provide access to new and promising treatments for people living with mental illness.
The numbers are beyond staggering and we need to be paying more attention by creating massive momentum to bring this matter to a point where we can have conversations about it everyday instead of shying away or completely dismissing it.
Please donate today and help me reach my fundraising goal, as a way to celebrate with me and know every little bit helps as even the smallest stone makes a ripple in the water.
Much gratitude and thanks, be sure to pass on to someone you know who needs to view this.
