Spring Into Action – Raising Funds and Awareness for Youth Mental Health In Canada
The fifteenth annual SIA event was a historic first! In spite of all the challenges presented by the ongoing global pandemic, we still managed to rise above and raise awareness for mental health issues. Our collective efforts met our fundraising goal for the Distress Centres of Greater Toronto COVID-19 response Fund which has seen an increase of 350 calls a month since the pandemic started. In addition, the types of calls have increased in severity and include domestic violence, family violence, suicide ideation and severe anxiety. As we did the year before, we continue to strive for a stigma-free future, bringing people together and helping transform how communities think about mental health!
We thank you for your help!
Looking forward to SIA21!
