The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for Canadians living with mental illness.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I know everyone is affected by mental health either personally, through a family, friend or colleague and even people out in the community. Mental health has been a challenge in many members of my family. I have overcome many challenges personally with social anxiety and panic attacks. I have been panic attack free for over a year and a half!
At Oakridge I feel we inspire hope for people living with mental illness. Through understanding and patience we can guide the students to see mental health as a medical condition that can get better through support and treatment. Mental health is often labelled in such negative ways that it becomes untalked about. Lets make Mental Health something we can work on together.
