The Sole Focus Project Ambassadors are engaging in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money for the Sole Focus Project campaign. Who will you support and #ShowYourSole?
The economic burden of mental illness in Canada is estimated at $51 billion per year. This includes health care costs, lost productivity, and reductions in health-related quality of life.
On average, 2,100 clients receive treatment from Canadian Mental Health Association Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) annually for moderate to severe mental illness.
Education and training are key areas not fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Yet they are key to shifting the tide of mental health stigma.
The Sole Focus Project aims to ease societal and financial burdens on those with a mental health or addiction problem by raising funds towards mental wellness education and awareness, providing training and treatment, and community support.
The more resources and services we can make available to those in need of help, the more we can ensure a mentally healthy Windsor & Essex County, overall.
