A Night to Remember: The Coming Together Gala
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. Significantly, it was great to see so many people from our community come together to support this cause. This included politicians, athletes, business owners, and media personalities.
Addressing Mental Health Concerns
Mental health issues are a pressing concern in our province, with many children and youth affected. Importantly, according to a report by the Canadian Mental Health Association, about 3.5% of young people in BC experience depression. Depression can impact a young person’s attitudes and emotions. It may cause them to feel unusually sad or irritated for over two weeks. Consequently, this is an alarming statistic that cannot be ignored. It’s crucial to do more, ensuring children and youth have the necessary support and resources to tackle these issues.
