Thank YOU for taking the time to read this. As many of you who will read this is aware, I have been in a tug-of-war with mental illness for quite some time now. I've grown up with the notion that it is better to show a brave face, let it go and have a grin and bear it attitude rather than confront "it" head on. And while it is too late to go back in time, it's NOT too late to change the prevailing thoughts and ideas about mental health that continue to stigmatize and bring shame and fear to vulnerable populations.
With that in mind, I'm excited to be joining thousands of walkers and runners across Canada in the Shoppers Drug Mart® Run for Women, raising help for women’s mental health programs at Lois Hole Hospital for Women.
As many of us are experiencing, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on our mental health. Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal.
Again, I appreciate YOU taking the time to read this and I sincerely thank YOU.
