COVID-19 has strained the mental health and wellbeing of people in our communities. Without traditional models of support, vulnerable people face a higher risk of harm.
The mental health challenges we’re seeing are great, diverse, and amplified because of the pandemic. Your support will:
- Ensure services continue to be there for those who need help
- Provide support for crisis lines that have seen a significant increase in calls
- Bolster essential services for people struggling with addiction and substance use
Those with mental health challenges need your support more than ever.
Show your local love and support the most vulnerable people at a time when it’s needed most.
Your donation is in good hands.
We invest your gift in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle. This is the power of United Way East Ontario.
