One Brave Night 2016
About a year and a half ago I embarked on a long journey of recovery from alcohol addiction, discovering that I also suffer from depression and anxiety. I didn't realize that many people that suffer from addiction also experience other mental health issues -- they typically go hand-in-hand.
CAMH (Center for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Canada) has been a primary resource for my recovery. I can honestly say that without CAMH, I don't know what me and my family would have done. I (we!) would almost certainly not be in the place I am today.
This Friday, May 13, I am participating in #OneBraveNight. This is a fundraiser for CAMH. I'll be staying up overnight with others to raise funds, awareness, and inspire hope for those living with mental illness.

UPDATE: I was able to raise nearly $1000 thanks to my friends, family, and supporters. Thank you, everyone! You can still donate to CAMH online even though this particular fundraiser is over.
