We are 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.
As many may know and many may not, I lost my mother to suicide when I was 16 years old. She was also the principle of my high school leaving another hole in the lives of 1200 children. Over the past 5 years, I have been working to raise awareness towards mental health and mental health treatments. I personally have used in-hospital treatment towards my own recovery and believe I would not be here still without it. Similarly, my co-caption Brianna Hamilton has had similar experiences when it comes to mental illness, causing us to rally together to overcome it!
In the summer of 2017, Brianna and I organized a 300 person baseball tournament that raised over $35,000 to Peterborough Regional Health Centres Adult In-Patient Mental Health Services. We are here again to get the ball rolling on our Second Annual Tournament and believe the #OneBraveNight campaign is a great place to start! Hitting Back at Mental Illness: in Memory of Kathy Ross & Jake Stanley, took the #OneBraveNight challenge because we want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now – and to defeat mental illness. By making a donation to our 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 us reach our fundraising goal.
