Get Involved

There are several ways any individual can get involved to provide support for individuals experiencing mental illness. Perhaps your life has been touched by mental illness and the stigma associated with it, and you want to help others with a similar experience.  Or maybe you are able to provide financial support to a specific popoulation in need. Whether you are sharing your personal story, volunteering your time, or organizing a fundraiser or donation we thank you. 

Donate Today

Creating a sense of hope is one of the greatest gifts we can give to those living with complex mental health challenges. Together with the Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health we are helping patients get access to the compassionate, recovery-based care they need to fully participate in an inclusive and stigma-free society.

My Story. My Voice.

Sharing your story can help you make sense of your experiences and can strengthen your emotional resilience and ability to cope. Being the recipient of a recovery story is also beneficial as it can instill hope and challenge stigma.
