Boyden once again joins fundraising efforts for The Royal's annual Breakfast
Date: 06 October 2021
Mental illness does not discriminate.
The Royal’s Leaders for Mental Health Breakfast has convened community business leaders to raise awareness and funds for mental health care and research. Growing annually, this event brings over a thousand leaders together to raise funds and awareness around the challenges of living with a mental illness.
On Oct 6, 2021, a difference can be made for those in our community who are struggling with mental illness. The Royal’s Leaders for Mental Health Breakfast brings together community and business leaders to raise awareness and funds for mental health care and research. The goal of the Breakfast never changes: share very personal mental health stories to help foster awareness, raise funds for mental health care and research, and build compassion and understanding.
From supporting leading-edge research to purchasing state-of-the-art equipment, donations will provide crucial funding which can enhance patient care and find better ways to treat mental illness. As the COVID-19 pandemic lags on, caring for our mental wellness has never been more important. We can make a difference for those in our community who are struggling with mental illness.
Substance use problems know no boundaries and no limits.
The numbers are now painfully clear: last year, as the country rallied to save lives during the pandemic, toxic street drugs wiped out Canadians at a record pace, with fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, leading the carnage. All told, confirmed or suspected drug poisonings killed nearly 7,000 Canadians in 2020, or 19 people every day.
With your support, The Royal will continue to respond to this crisis by investing in developing more rapid response mental health programs via remote therapies, working proactively with people known to have depression and anxiety, and supporting those in acute impoverishment.
Join on Wednesday, October 6 at 7:30 a.m. as The Royal proudly welcomes the following Special Guests:
Hosted by Ian Mendes, senior writer for The Athletic, former host on TSN 1200 and serves as a columnist for TSN.ca.
