Event information

The Challenge

Taking the Sunrise Challenge is a fun and simple way to support CAMH and the work we’re doing to find new solutions to the most complex issues in mental health.

Rising Together

Participants in the Sunrise Challenge are asked to post a photo of their Sunrise Moment with #CAMHSunriseChallenge to social media every day of the challenge.

  • Your Sunrise Moment can be a picture of the sunrise, an alarm clock, your breakfast, or anything else that shows people you completed the challenge that day by waking up early.
  • We encourage you to do something positive for your mental health during your Sunrise Moment — whether that means taking time to meditate, move or read.
  • Sign up for the Sunrise Challenge email updates for announcements about our daily Sunrise activities!
