Emotional and psychological pain is all encompassing. It's not like a physical injury. You can't point to it, bandage it, or often even explain it. It is confusing, overwhelming and distracting. It hurts. Now, imagine you are a teen, struggling with the already confusing array of social and physical challenges of growing up and fitting in. Sound like fun? Not so much.
On September 19th, 2015 I am running to support youth mental health. I am running to raise awareness and donations toward a program that helps families figure out how and where to get help. Funds donated to the RBC Run for the Kids go to Sunnybrook's Family Navigation Project which assists young people right here in the GTA. While over two million Canadian youth struggle with mental illness, only one in five get the help they need. This should, can and will change with awareness and support. Join me in making a difference.
