My Message

On Sunday, May 5, I’ll be walking for those individuals who feel that they cannot reach out for help. I will be walking for my friends and family who have battled depression and other mental health issues. I will be walking for those who have lost their lives to this battle.

As someone who has to combat against depression and suicide since I was 14 years old after the death of my brother, I will be walking for myself.

Depression affects me daily, talking to those close people around me has always been therapeutic in my mental health progression. So, I want to advocate to the youth that there does not need to be this fear of expressing the vulnerable side of your emotions.

The conversation needs to change from it not being cool to express your feelings to being comfortable enough with family and friends to reach out. The only way to do that is to educate ourselves of how these kids could be feeling and be prepared for when these types of discussions arise.

I am excited to get behind this initiative to tackle the issue of mental health in hope of healing the next generation of bright minds.

Let’s end the stigma together.

Kids Help Phone is a charity and has been a trusted source of support for almost 30 years. Thanks to events like the Walk, when young people find the courage to ask for help, Kids Help Phone will always be there to answer.

Your contributions and support is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Matthew
