Dear Family and Friends,
The past year has taught me a lot about mental health, and I'm ready to step it up for Stella's Place, one of Canada’s first mental health assessment and treatment centres specifically serving young adults 16 to 29 with complex mood and anxiety disorders.
Every day, I am humbled and inspired by the courage and resilience of our young people who are not afraid to speak openly about their mental health problems and their hard work to address those challenges.
At Stella's Place, 64% of participants screen as being at high risk of suicide and one third have had a previous suicide attempt. Our results clearly demonstrate that Stella's Place is saving lives.
Next Sunday, I am running to save lives. Please sponsor my run. Your support means a lot to me, both professionally and personally!
