The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for Canadians living with mental illness.
One in five people will experience mental illness this year. One in five. Our friends. Our family. Maybe even us. All too often alone, ashamed and afraid.
I am taking 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.
Based on my profile, the OBN activity recommended for me is -- not surprisingly -- meditation. On April 6th I will spend an evening in metta (loving kindness) meditation directed at those who suffer, particularly those who suffer in silence, the effects of mental illness.
The only person that I am 100% certain will benefit from my evening of meditation is me, but with your donations we can make sure that others do as well.
Thank you for your consideration and generousity. Namaste.
