CAMH Sunrise Challenge

Power of Sunrise with POP

 

 

 
WHY WE RISE
 
In loving memory of Maeve & Philippe
We rise for those who’ve been affected by mental illness, for those who’ve lost their lives or a loved one to suicide, and to show those currently struggling that they don’t have to go through this alone—that they matter, that help is out there, and that people care about them.
 
The time is now to end the stigma and shame that still surround mental illness today. 
 
Time to rise together and stop mental illness from destroying lives.
 
 
WHY NOW
11 CANADIANS DIE BY SUICIDE EVERY DAY.
THE WORLD LOSES 800,000 PEOPLE TO SUICIDE EVERY YEAR.
FOR EACH PERSON WE LOSE, AT LEAST 7 TO 10 OTHERS ARE DEEPLY AFFECTED.
THERE ARE 450 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS WORLDWIDE.
1 IN 5 CANADIANS WILL EXPERIENCE MENTAL ILLNESS IN ANY GIVEN YEAR.
BY THE AGE OF 40, 50% OF CANADIANS WILL HAVE HAD A MENTAL ILLNESS.
