Please join Aira and I in our self challenge to walk 500 miles as a team in memory of our best friend Andy Holmberg. We lost our dear friend to mental illness and we want to ensure he is not forgotten. We need to make a difference. We need to talk about this and we need to honour Andy's memory. You will never be forgotten and in your honour we will do our part to ensure we can help others who are suffering. Our team is holding a fundraiser to support CAMH, Canada's leading mental health hospital.
Did you know that 1 in 5 Canadians experience mental illness in any given year? And that 4,000 Canadians die by suicide every year—almost 11 people per day?
And yet many don't realize that, in its most severe forms, mental illness can be fatal.
With your support, we can change how the world sees and treats mental illness. We can break down stigma and lead important conversations about suicide prevention. We can give people time to get the help they need; families time to heal; and researchers and clinicians time to make breakthroughs and offer new treatment options.
Please donate today and help us reach our fundraising goal.
Together, we can give people hope for a better tomorrow.
