On average, 11 people die by suicide each day.1 We are facing a mental health crisis.
One in 5 Canadians will experience a mental illness and 70% of mental health problems arise during childhood or adolescence.2 With the onset of COVID-19, the mental health landscape has worsened. After six months of the pandemic, 1 in 10 Canadians reported recent thoughts or feelings of suicide and 40% of Canadians who reported a decline in their mental health.3
Many are struggling in silence due to the stigma surrounding mental illness. Others have no place to turn. Join us and ensure no one ever struggles alone.
Ending stigma. Increasing access to care.
In response to the crisis, Canadian charities are working tirelessly to de-stigmatize mental health and provide critical services. These services offer advocacy efforts, crisis support, counselling, education, and other types of treatment and professional support services.
As charities continue to save lives and create change, they look to us for support. To continue their work, they need our help.
