One in five people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. One in five. That’s your sister, your uncle, your best friend, your boss, the crossing guard at your kid’s school, the old man at the library, the young mom on your street. It’s you.
Mental illness doesn’t discriminate, and it doesn’t go away without a fight. That’s why CAMH is hosting One Brave Night to help defeat mental illness. For people living with mental illness, nighttime is often the hardest for them. It is in the darkness that they feel most alone and have the least amount of hope.
CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health challenges the country to stay up all night and fundraise in order to defeat mental illness. At dawn, participants will post their #sunriseselfies to stand in support of those living with mental illness. On May 13, start a team, join some friends, and stay up all night. Do it for your friends, your family, for yourself.
