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.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now – and to defeat mental illness.
I, myself, suffer mental illness; Borderline Personality Disorder. In the past my diagnosis ran my life. I could not hold any form of stable relationship whether family, friend, or romantic. I never had a job for more than 3 months if it lasted that long and to cope with a rollercoaster of uncontrollable and overwhelming emotions I abused drugs and alcohol. Today thanks to the CAMH and the research done to help create access to programs such as Emotion Regulation I am slowly learning to control my diagnosis and patch up my life to create a fulfilling lifestyle.
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.
