Help Henry raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Finding the motivation to run on behalf of Lumenus Community Services was easy.....

This year, Lumenus is focusing on transitional youth aged youth (ages 18-24) who are left in a precarious position where their mental health needs and anxiety are heightened and services are not readily available in the adult system.  

As a result, the funds raised this year will enable Lumenus to provide counseling services for the transitional youths who are no longer eligible for our funded child and youth services that end on the 18th birthday.

Clients should get the help they need when they need it. 

Lumenus needs you more than ever.  Your Donations make this possible. 

Mental illness does not discriminate against status, age, race or gender.  It can affect anyone at anytime.  You or someone you know….

1 in 5 kids suffer from mental illness such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and conduct disorders with many going undiagnosed and untreated due to lack of resources (CMHO). 

That means you or someone you know will experience a mental illness in your lifetime. Counselling offered at Lumenus helps to prevent a crisis and provide the tools needed to help individuals cope through these difficult times

Description

THANK YOU! for helping Lumenus surpass our goal of $80,000!

 

To date we have raised an outstanding $93,500 (from donations through this website and lumenus.ca)

 

This site will continue to accept donations until November 15. 

 

Lumenus provides excellent, accessible and integrated mental health, developmental and community services where every client has the opportunity to be seen, be heard and to be well.

 

Our FREE, 5 Walk-In Clinics provide brief counselling service.  In the aftermath of COVID-19 and with the school opening, we anticipate a spike in demand for mental health counselling services. 

As many as 1 in 4 transitional aged youth suffer with a mental health disorder and many experience high physiological distress. Statistics show a marked increase in Ontario youth suicides, substance use, eating disorders and anxiety during the pandemic.  Lumenus services can help them now.

KIDS CAN’T WAIT!

Your Donations will increase the number of youth we can help!
