The Coming Together Gala was a night to remember in Surrey, British Columbia. This event was not only entertaining, but it also raised funds for mental health awareness among youth and kids. It was great to see so many people from our community come together to support this cause, including politicians, athletes, business owners, and media personalities.
Mental health issues are a pressing concern in our province, with many children and youth affected. According to a report by, the Canadian Mental Health Association, about 3.5% of young people in BC experience depression. Depression can affect a child or youth’s attitudes and emotions, making them feel unusually sad or irritated for more than two weeks at a time. This is an alarming statistic that cannot be ignored. We need to do more to ensure that our children and youth have access to the support and resources they need to address these issues.

The Coming Together Gala was a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness and funds for mental health programs.
