Together We Can Step Up for Mental Health and Help Kids in Crisis.
Charities and the people they support need our help more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for RBC Race for the Kids on October 16-17 to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
Last year more than 3,000 young people accessed mental healthcare at RVH. That gave me more than 3,000 reasons to sign up for RBC Race for the Kids.
Please join me as I raise funds to help provide a customized space within RVH's Emergency Department that is private and calming with direct and immediate access to staff who specialize in managing their care - easing stress and stigma often felt with emergency visits.
Together, we can help ensure patients have the right care when and where they need it. Together, we can step up for mental health at RVH.
Thank you from me and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
I am participating in this year’s first annual #RBCRacefortheKids in Simcoe/Muskoka in support of youth mental health. The #RBCRacefortheKids will be held on October 16/17 to raise money for a cause close to my heart and I would love your support. Last year, over 3500 youth visited RVH experiencing mental health issues. It’s become the pandemic of the pandemic. Your support will have a direct impact on children and youth right here in Simcoe Muskoka. RVH’s Emergency Department cares for three children in mental health crisis on any given day and the isolation and disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic has caused the number of youth in crisis to climb, at times, up to four times higher than usual. With your support, youth seeking mental health care through RVH’s Emergency Department will be cared for in a customized space that is private and calming with direct and immediate access to specialized staff. This approach will help ensure patients have the right care where they need it, easing stress for patients and their families, along with taking away the sense of stigma often felt with emergency visits.
While RBC Race for the Kids is a global event, supporting many charities worldwide, know that your participation in Simcoe Muskoka will make a difference right here at home.
