This event is a combination of awareness walk and a fundraiser for my agency. Any money I raise on this platform will be used to offset mental health cuts in our young adult program. Our young adult program serves young people ages 18 to 25 who have a mental illness. It is not therapy, instead as a peer network with MHA leadership. This program links these participants to volunteer activities in the community, job opportunities and educational opportunities. It brings these young adults together, allows them to realize that they are not alone in their struggle and offers them the supports necessary to recover from their illness.
