Back in December we were fortunate to receive a generous donation of $500 from Aquatera, and we at the CMHA would like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts. Our main goal at CMHA is to help end the stigma and allow those who suffer from mental illness to rise above and conquer their problems. Millions of Canadians are affected directly by mental illness. That is why we work tirelessly to help those in need: because it affects us all. If it isn’t a personal diagnosis, then chances are it’s someone we know and love. Through our various outreach programs, we believe that its possible to educate our nation—one community at a time—about the myths and facts surrounding mental illness with the goal of creating a positive environment in which Canadians can live. It’s important that we look after one another so that we can all lead safe, happy lives.
Aquatera is a pillar in our community. They do us all a huge service by providing us with clean water for all our daily needs, and by giving us the means to keep our city clean through their various waste disposal and recycling programs. Every year they go the extra mile, helping Grande Prairie through their litter pickup program, by sharing money made by their bottle donation program, and by accepting various sponsorships. By contacting us, they’ve also shown that they believe in the importance of mental health. These things do go hand in hand, if you think about it! If we work hard to take care of each other, we can also work together to take care of our beautiful planet. It may sound like a dream, but we truly believe that it’s possible with donations like the one given to us by Aquatera. So, thanks once again to Aquatera, and let’s continue to work together to create a positive, healthy environment for all Canadians!
