Mental health is an important aspect of our overall well-being that is often overlooked. Statistically, 1 in 5 Canadians experience mental illness in any given year. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, however, there has been a massive increase in mental health challenges in communities all across the globe. Over the past few years, many of us have learned first-hand that mental illness does not discriminate; it can be life-altering and it affects us all.
Join us in helping end the stigma surrounding mental health!
This Spring we're partnering up with RVH Foundation — a local non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of care and advance healthcare services at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
Taking place during Mental Health Week in Canada, our Spring Revival Pop-Up Market & Fashion Show Fundraiser on Saturday, May 6th, 2023 is Barrie's first annual mental wellness-focused event with proceeds going to support RVH Foundation and its mental health initiatives.
