Ride Don’t Hide is an annual community bike ride which aims to raise funds to support families in BC, bringing awareness and breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness one pedal at a time.
CMHA Vernon actively works to promote mentally health people in a healthy society. CMHA Vernon offers a variety of programs and services to the Vernon community, from work experience to supported pre-employment programs such as preparing and serving food to working in a clothing retail environment. Education and support sessions allow participants to learn life skills, wellness management and raise awareness of mental illness. A range of socialization and recreation programs further support wellness. CMHA Vernon’s diverse housing program includes residential facilities to subsidized housing.
Funds raised will be used to support the work in our local community to raise awareness about mental health, end the stigma and provide essential services to people living with mental health issues in our community. Together we can ensure mentally healthy people in a mentally healthy Vernon community.
