For the people who live in the interior of BC, the future of health care begins at home. The pandemic taught us a lot about what needs to change.
It also showed us what we CAN do.
$40 million to support the change needed, right here at home.
As part of the $40 million ‘Closer to home than you think’ campaign, the KGH Foundation is committed to raising $3.5 million to address the mental health care crisis right here at home.
Mental well-being has become one of the most pervasive health challenges our communities face. It has been a critical concern in our region for some time, affecting people of all ages, genders, and social-economic conditions, and affecting some communities disproportionately more than others.
Those who are struggling with mild or moderate symptoms need more, safe options for early intervention. The time to restore the health of our mental health care system is now. Immediate funding is needed to provide relief to existing mental health programs critically stressed under the weight of the increased demand. But it’s not enough. It’s time to reimagine the system of mental health care in our community.
Your generosity will provide for the immediate needs of mental health providers in the community to help people who are struggling right now, and facilitate collaboration to support system innovation, to build the sustainable, inclusive, and accessible system of mental health care that we all deserve.
Thank you for supporting mental health care in our community.
