I'm running in the RBC Run for the Kids in support of youth mental health initiatives at Sunnybrook.
Sunnybrook's Youth Bipolar Clinic provided my family with the help we desperately needed for our struggling daughter during her high school years. We searched for help in a number of places, trying to identify and understand what was going on inside of her- it was very, very difficult for her, and it was terrifying for us. I cannot express what a relief it was to find professionals who understood her struggles, provided her with help, and supported our family in such a matter of fact, empathetic way.
She is now successfully negotiating university, but I think it's safe to say that if it wasn't for the psychiatrists, family therapists and other staff at the Youth Bipolar Clinic that our family, and our daughter in particular, might still be in crisis today. She still experiences ups and downs, but I am so much more confident that she will make it through, because she has the kind of support she needs.
Please make a donation and help youth find the right mental health support they need, when they need it. By helping them, believe me, you help their entire families.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
