On November 30, 2016 I lost my dad to suicide.
It has been a long tough year without him, but I've come to realize that my pain pales in comparison to what my dad was feeling to take such drastic measures. I'm still heartboken, but I'm stronger now, and I'm ready to fight for anyone who is calling out for help.
#fortheloveofwoody is stepping up again this year to raise awareness and end the stigma surrounding 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.
