My Message

On June 24, 2018, thousands of cyclists will come together to celebrate mental health for all Canadians while raising $1,700,000 for mental health programs and services – and I will be one of them!

Canadian Mental Health Association’s annual fundraising bike ride, Ride Don’t Hide is taking place on June 24th 2018. Over 7000 riders will be participating in communities in Newfoundland and Labrador all the way to British Columbia.

Ride Don’t Hide is a community bike ride raising funds for essential programs and services in communities, workplaces and schools – programs that change lives. Programs that save lives.

Some will ride for their family.

Some will ride for a friend.

We will all ride to put an end to the stigma of mental illness.

Mental Health awareness has become very important to me after being diagnosed with depression.   

Grateful - Feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness; thankful.

Believe it or not, I am grateful for my depression.  I know that sounds strange but I am. Living with depression is not easy, in fact it is a daily struggle. But it has provided me with opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. It has helped me reach out and bring some attention to depression and mental illness in general. I have started a website to share my stories and thoughts.  Every time someone thanks me for speaking out, I am grateful. Every time someone says that I have helped them or brought them some hope, I am grateful. When someone says “I thought I was the only one that felt this way.” I am grateful.  If what I am going through can help someone else, as difficult as it is I am truly grateful it happened to me.

 

“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.”

-Alphonse Karr
