EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2013
In October of 2011 I lost my dad, John Lindsay Leighton after he took his own life. I'm raising money to donate to organizations across Canada that provide support to suicide survivors and mental health services to the public.
I hope to be able to donate the money by September 10, which is International Sucide Prevention Day.
Mental health is one of the largest and most overlooked health issues facing society today. There is so little funding for mental health, and suicide prevention and support gets a very small slice of that funding.
