WHY WE Energize
From May 2 – June 30, 2022, we are part of the MOVEment to ensure Canadians have access to CMHA mental health programs when they need it!
So many of us have felt the rippling effects of the pandemic over the last two years. At the end of 2021, 1 in 4 Canadians (336,000 Calgarians) identified symptoms of depression, anxiety or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is an increase from 1 in 5 in 2020. Also, 54% of Albertans did not receive the mental health support they needed, within the past 12 months, because they couldn’t afford it. That's a lot of people needing help!
Did you know, it costs approximately $330 to help one more Canadian access CMHA mental health resources? We are aiming to raise $3,300, to help ten more Canadians!
Energize Don't Hide raises essential funds for Canadian Mental Health Association - Calgary Region programs. CMHA Calgary begins by raising awareness, educating, and providing community-based programs for individuals and families living with a mental health or substance use concern, and/or experienced a loss by suicide. They work closely with other community organizations to bridge gaps in the mental health care system and facilitate access to important services and resources.
Be part of the solution and help us reach our $3,300 goal! Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference.
We are aiming to complete 33,000 minutes of activity between May 2 - June 30. We challenge you to join Energize Don't Hide, get active and raise funds for CMHA Calgary mental health programs. Together we are a MOVEment for mental health!
