WHY WE Energize
We may not be together, but we are not alone.
This summer, we are part of the thousands of Canadians energizing to bring mental health into the open from May 3 - June 30, 2021. Each year 1.6 million Canadians report unmet mental health care needs, and the demand for services has escalated due to the pandemic. The mental health effects of COVID-19—including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, substance use—will last long after the pandemic has subsided. It costs approximately $330 to ensure one person has access to CMHA mental health programs and support, when they need it.
Our team is aiming to raise $3,330!
Energize Don't Hide raises essential funds for Canadian Mental Health Association Calgary Region programs and services that work to keep people out of crisis and support people of all ages with the mental health help they need, when they need it, wherever they are. We know that by participating in Energize Don’t Hide, we am raising funds for mental health and taking care of my community.
Every donation, no matter the size, is supporting Calgarians.
We are going to be active in whichever way fits best for our interests and ambitions, whether it be indoor or outdoor, by cycling, walking, running, doing yoga, holding kitchen dance parties, meditating, etc. from May 3 – June 30, 2021. We may be at home, but together we’re a movement for mental health. Energize Don’t Hide!
