Let's step up to defeat mental illness together!
The CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenge is a Canada-wide challenge to inspire hope for Canadians living with mental illness. As someone who lives with clinical depression and generalized anxiety, this challenge is especially close to my heart.
This year, I've been fortunate enough to share some of my experience with mental illness through the Wellness Education Centre Facebook page. Since doing this, I have been met with an outpour of support from family, friends, and strangers alike letting me know that by doing this, I have given them strength and a feeling of solidarity as they navigate their own journeys with mental health issues.

I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to continue to inspire hope for other people living with mental illness. It's my hope that by sharing our own experiences and showing our support for others, we can make the conversation around mental health continuous and create a world where everyone can feel comfortable opening up about experiencing 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.
