I’m 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.
Many people around the world suffer from mental health in different forms. Each individual has their own tolerance for what goes on in their head, however it is always difficult. Some variations of mental health disorders are anxiety disorders, depression, schizophrenia, or eating disorders. People who suffer from these agonizing situations often do it alone and hide it from others. The CAMH challenge brings awareness to those who feel as though they are always alone and in the dark. There are others all around the world who feel alone too. This doesn't need to happen. When we come together as a community we can fight off and endure it together so that it becomes more bearable. Night is the most painful time for people in these rough situations. It is the time when their minds are completely awake and tearing them apart. This challenge, to stay awake for an entire night, does not even come close to how sleep deprived affected people are. However, it does give us a hint of what others are dealing with, and helps us have a better understanding of their situation. I would like to bring awareness to mental health and those suffering from it.
If you are suffering from a mental illness, or want to avoid any cases of it, I suggest meditating, exercising, colouring, listening to music, or talking to someone in times of need.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now, and deafeat it once and for all. 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.
Thank you for your support,
