Corporations: Get Involved

Work together to defeat mental illness, inspire hope and have fun!

CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health™ is a Canada-wide challenge to share one night — April 6 — to inspire hope for the one in five Canadians living with mental illness in any given year, including the 500,000 Canadians who are away from work on any given day due to mental illness. According to a Ipsos reportⱡ, 60% of Canadians believe that companies should support mental health. By participating in CAMH One Brave Night, your company will help defeat mental illness and inspire hope for all Canadians.

A meaningful team building activity that’s easy to plan.

There are many ways to customize CAMH One Brave Night for your company — the challenge is virtual, flexible and can be built to fit with your company’s culture. Use this checklist and this poster to help shape your challenge and get your colleagues or staff excited about getting involved!
