NEW INITIATIVE STARTING SOON
Intergenerational Programming for Seniors!
Mental health issues can affect anyone: young, middle aged or older.
While Peaks for Change is committed to creating awareness and fundraising to end stigma surrounding mental health for all people, our new initiative will be focusing on finding ways to help seniors who may be feeling isolated or impacted by any number of mental health challenges.
Details about this new initiative will be released soon.
If you would like to learn more about our previous initiative, Climbing the Seven Summits of the World, check it out here.
Help Us Raise Funds
Intergenerational Programming for Seniors
Our goal is to provide innovative intergenerational programming to enhance the well being and mental health of senior citizens requiring assisted living services in Ontario.
The 7 Summits
Ema Dantas, founder of Peaks for Change, committed to climbing the Seven Summits of the World to raise awareness and fundraise to end the stigma of mental health.
Funds were donated to CAMH Foundation in direct support of the groundbreaking CAMH Urgent Drop-in Clinic in Toronto, Ontario.
Thank you very much for Peaks for Change Foundation’s generous gift in support of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s redevelopment, and in particular for directing this support towards construction of the CAMH Bridging Clinic, part of the brand new Crisis and Critical Care Building, which will open towards the end of 2020.
Clients who visit the Bridging Clinic can count on receiving immediate care for their urgent mental health needs on a walk-in basis. When the new Crisis and Critical Care Building opens, this high-quality care will be delivered in a spacious, modern environment co-located on the same campus with all of CAMH’s mental illness and addictions inpatient units. Thank you for partnering with us to build better tomorrows for our patients.
Deborah Gillis, President & CEO, CAMH Foundation
I left Everest without summiting.
Making the decision to leave was heart breaking, painful and one that I thought over very well. I cried a lot in my tent. And prayed.
I am at home, and today is my last day of quarantine. All my Covid tests have been negative.I am still feeling tired – sleeping during the day comes easily these days, as if my body wants to shut off my brain, as it drifts to the “what if’s. Not being able to leave the house also has taken a toll in my self-esteem and mental health. I feel like I am a criminal.
Mount Kosciuszko is mainland Australia’s highest mountain at 2,228 meters (7,310 ft) above sea level. It’s located within the Kosciuszko National Park, and from the ski town in Thredbo Village it’s only a 13 km return walk to the summit.
