On Saturday, May 11th come out to LAMP Community Health Centre’s Walk for Change 5K Walkathon, and support the 1 in 5 Canadians living with mental illness in your community. You can help reduce the stigma of mental illness, and raise funds to benefit local mental health support programs, such as LAMP’s own Among Friends. This program provides social and recreation opportunities to individuals facing mental health challenges and helps them work toward recovery while promoting health, community, and respect.
The event begins at LAMP Community Health Centre near Islington Ave & Lakeshore Blvd West, with Registration at 9am and the walk at 10am. Join members of the community as they walk 5km through the Etobicoke-Lakeshore area, stopping first at the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital buildings, and continuing passed the Mastercard Centre on Kipling, towards the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery on Evans. Along the way, speakers will bring the history to life while discussing the importance of community mental health services to those of us affected by mental illness. All members of the public are welcome.
