My story with mental illness started over two years ago. I knew that I just wasn't myself, that I needed help, I needed to change something. I was irritable, angry, worried about absolutely everything, and feeling lonely, even in a large group. Today, I now have regular check-ups with my doctor, I am on 2 different types of medication, and I am starting to feel like myself again. It takes a lot to come forward and admit that something isn't right. By sharing my story and participating in One Brave Night, I hope that others will get the help they need.
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. 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.
