We will rise until no one with mental illness is left behind.

Sunrise Challenge week has arrived! The Sunrise Challenge invites you to rise with the sun from May 29 to June 2, while raising vital funds for CAMH, Canada’s leading mental health research hospital. Remember to share your sunrise moment on social media using #CAMHSunriseChallenge. Rise with the sun (or whenever you begin your day) and take a picture that captures the start of your day—whether a PJ selfie, cup of coffee, yoga mat, alarm clock—to show your followers you completed the challenge.

During this year’s Sunrise Challenge week, we are pleased to present Sunrise and Shine on CAMH—a five-part video series that shines a spotlight on some of the incredible work being done at CAMH, supported in part by the funds raised by the Sunrise Challenge. Each day, a new video will be shared that highlights a specific program or area of research that helps people living with mental illness. By rising together and rallying our friends, family and co-workers for mental health, we can build a future where no one is left behind.
