On Friday April 6th, I will be stepping up and staying up. This will be my third year participating in One Brave Night for Mental Health. I am taking the #OneBraveNightChallenge because I struggle with mental illness & addiction. During university, in my early 20s mental illness reared its ugly head, and I had the fight of my life--a fight I nearly lost. Battling mental illness & addiction has been the most challenging thing I've ever done, and I couldn't have done it alone. With the help of CAMH, supportive friends & family, and a will to live a life that was not defined by mental illness, I can now say I'm living my best life. Mental illness & addiction will be a lifelong battle for me, but I now have the tools and resources necessary to take the steps I need to live a healthy life.
I want others battling mental illness & addiction to have the same fighting chance I did--so I ask you to make a donation, or share my page, in the hopes we can give someone else the chance to beat mental illness.
This is our chance to step up! Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal.
