The Greater Toronto Ride

You don’t even know them, yet you changed their life… boosted them up and guided them in a bright direction at the key moment when they may have lost their way… lost all hope.

‘Sam’ is a youth from Richmond Hill who one day stepped onto the MOBYSS Youth Mobile Mental Health Clinic. Sam hadn’t had a proper medical check up in years and reached out for help.

Sam began to open up to the nurse practitioner, but not about physical health, about the struggles Sam was having with their mental health.

Sam wrestled with the stigma that is associated with mental illness. They had anxiety. They felt they did not fit in and it seemed they had nowhere to turn. Sam was thinking of taking their own life.  After building trust with Sam and then talking for hours, Sam felt listened to and developed a plan of self – care, one that met their needs and gave them a glimmer of hope.

Sam began counselling sessions weekly and continues to make progress. So much so that they have been able to find a meaningful job through the CHMA employment program.

Because of the wide range of services we provide – and as a result of people like you who care about the community and take the time and energy it requires to give back – Sam got the help they needed.

On behalf of this youth who now has a future to build on we say THANK YOU!

Each MOBYSS visit costs $250.  We need your support to continue to provide mental health support to so many struggling youth.  Did you know that 75% of all adults report the onset of their mental illness in adolescence?  Each $250 raised could potentially make the difference in saving a youths life like Sam.
