It is said that 1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health challenge in their lifetime.
I AM 1 OF THE 1 IN 5.
A passionate advocate for Mental Health Awareness, I've been a proud participant of CAMH's One Brave Night fundraiser since 2016. I'm honoured to be a brand ambassador, once more, for this year's campaign.
It's no secret that I'm a singer/songwriter under the alias Ms Paige. However, for this year's campaign, I'm showcasing my hidden talent of photography in support of mental health! From May 1-10, I will showcase my passion for photography along with my poetry on Instagram.com/MsPaigeMusic, each day visually portraying experiences of my own mental health challenges, both the good and the not-so-great.
CAMH One Brave Night is a chance to share a piece of myself with the world for a great cause. I am excited to express my passion and creativity, so we can inspire hope for the one in five Canadians who experience mental illness every year.
Please donate today and help me reach my fundraising goal so that we can fight the stigma together, fund innovative research and make facilities, programs & treatments more accessible to Canadians in need.
For those of you who are fighting through your own storm, take my personal mantra to heart:
YOU are not alone
YOU are good enough
YOU are worth it
And remember, you don't have to understand to be understanding.
