This August 30th marks 30 years since I lost my Dad. His battle was with cancer. My battle has been dealing with the effects of grief and trauma at a young age. It took me many years, many losses, and many close encounters with friends and family struggling with mental health and addiction to understand the importance of taking care of yourself and your mental health. Grief and trauma, if not dealt with, will continue to affect your life, your loved ones, and your overall mental health. I am not a runner, but this year I am going to run for my life, lives lost, and for CAMH. If you can donate- thank you. My team is called Head Strong!!!
Join the CAMH Foundation STWM running team today and start raising funds to support the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health—Canada's leading mental health hospital.
With your support, we can change attitudes, behaviours and culture. We can drive action and make a difference. We can shape a world where mental illness is seen in the same light as every other illness, and all people receive the level of care they need and deserve. A world where Mental Health is Health.
