Join the Sole Focus Project movement and take a stand for mental health as we collectively create a legacy fund to further enhance and distribute mental wellness education, awareness and training in our community, and ensure the sustainability of programs not funded by our government.
Your donation helps support a mentally healthy community. Together, we can reach our campaign goal by raising $1,500,000 towards mental wellness in Windsor & Essex County.
On average, 2,600 clients receive treatment from the Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB) annually for moderate to severe mental illness.
Education and training are key areas not fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Yet they are key to shifting the tide of mental health stigma.
Bereavement counselling for both children and adults can help those struggling with the loss of a loved one and mitigate the need for more intensive intervention later on.
The Sole Focus Project aims to ease societal and financial burdens on those with a mental health issue, addiction, or the bereaved, by raising funds towards mental wellness education and awareness, providing training and treatment, and community support.
The Sole Focus Project seeks to create a legacy fund to further enhance and distribute mental wellness education, awareness and training in our community.
Gifts to the Sole Focus Project will help to fund these initiatives about mental health and wellness to targeted groups, including emerging adults, veterans, newcomers and workplaces.
The key to starting this conversation is education and awareness. Education empowers individuals to pay the same attention to their mental health as they do their physical health. Individuals are then able to focus on the signs and symptoms to look for, what tools are available, and where to go for help.
Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including the stress of balancing work with your health and relationships.
Mental illness does not discriminate.
It can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, education, or wealth.
Family, friends, and colleagues will also be affected. Left untreated, mental illness can significantly affect relationships, employment, and physical health.
