One Brave Night asks Canadians to give one night to support those living with mental illness and addiction by raising funds and awareness. It’s a peer-to-peer fundraising initiative offering all Canadians the chance to show their support for the one in five Canadians who face mental illness in any given year.
In its first two years, CAMH One Brave Night for Mental Health has brought together more than 3,500 Canadians, 15,000 donors and raised more than $1.5 million, with all funds supporting CAMH’s life-saving work.
