Mental Health Foundation Annual Breakfast

 

Presented in partnership with Altitude Investments. Our fundraising breakfast aims to connect our community to the importance of mental health.

 

Our Keynote Speaker

 

Victoria Maxwell

Victoria Maxwell is a recognized international keynote speaker who uses her personal story of recovery from mental illness to increase awareness, transform negative beliefs and ignite powerful conversations about mental health.

For the last 20 years, she’s helped audiences better understand the “insider’s” experience of mental illness and recovery; how to comfortably speak to someone who is struggling and how to create long-lasting wellness in a supportive environment.

 

 

 

What are we fundraising for?

Today, someone in your community is desperate for support. Close to relapse. Alone, afraid, distressed, perhaps even having thoughts of harming themselves.

Together we can provide better access to the care they need to thrive.

From cutting edge brain stimulation equipment for the treatment of depression to the creation of Kickstand—a new integrated service for young people—past support has innovatively transformed mental health care across the province.

With your support, the Foundation can move quickly to respond to urgent need across the addiction and mental health care system. So no one ever has to face their mental health concerns alone.

YOU CAN HELP.

Join us in-person or virtually on March 2, 2022, for our Annual Breakfast Fundraiser to raise awareness, understanding and support for urgent mental health issues that affect many of us personally, and all of us collectively.

This year our theme is “Together We Grow” because mental health is an issue that no one person or organization can tackle alone.  When we work together and support one another, collectively we grow in our understanding and in our own mental health journey.  

We’ll work together to raise money and advocate for change so everyone has a place to go and the support they need when they need it most.

Together, breakfast attendees make a difference in the lives of Albertans with mental illness.

Funds raised at the 2017 Breakfast helped purchase 5 brain stimulation machines. For those whose path to recovery felt hopeless, it’s a light at the end of the tunnel. In Edmonton, 133 individuals have already benefited from treatment.
