What is the Sunrise ChallengeTM?

The Sunrise Challenge fundraiser invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for one week (May 31-June 6) while raising money to support the groundbreaking mental health research and suicide prevention initiatives happening at CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.

The Time is Now

At its most serious, mental illness can be fatal. In Canada, 11 people die by suicide every day. Globally, 800,000 lives are lost to this tragic outcome every year. The statistics are harrowing, but there is hope on the horizon. We created the Sunrise Challenge because it’s time. Time to invest in mental health like we do physical health. Time to end the silence, stigma, and shame that still surround mental illness today. Time to rise together and stop mental illness from destroying lives.
