Even someone as adept as I am at placing my foot in my mouth, at wearing my heart on my sleeve and being an open book... I shy from speaking openly about my own battle with depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicide ideation.
In the hands of a caring, incredibly capable mental health professional, I was guided to heal and gain the strength to built my own foundations of wellness and perspective. I work every day at mastering my black dog...and I don't mean Bonny :) https://youtu.be/XiCrniLQGYc.
The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope and end the stigma for Canadians living with mental illness.
I am participating in 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.
This is a chance to reach out and step up. Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal <3
