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.
So many suffering with mental ilness have experienced sleepless nights, including myself. I remember so many nights were I would lay awake going through the endless cycles of anxieties plaguing my mind, trying to stop my heart from racing long enough for me to get a couple of hours in before starting another stressfilled day. So many of these nights can end in tears, feeling lost and alone. I was lucky enough to have amazing support from my family and friends to help battle this feeling of loneliness, but so many don't.
I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness. I want to show them that they are not alone and that there are people out there who not only care about them, but will stand by them. By making a donation to my One Brave Night, you are not only helping to raise awareness, but also helping CAMH improve access to care, conduct research to find better treatments, and build more spaces for healing.
Together we can make a difference, we can show those suffering that they are not alone and that we are here to help. I want to thank you so much for your time, and remember that every penny helps.
