I started with a google search, and 8 months later I had a world wide mental health charity, $11,000, 4 articles and I made a change for those who need it. This is just the beginning of what I’m going to do. #mentalhealthmatters

Mental health strikes. Mental health is a killer, a devil and a heart breaker. This is my dad in the end of 2017, riding 2 dolphins in Jamaica with the biggest smile on his face. My dad was the happiest man on the planet, he came home every day with the biggest smile on his face, telling me and my mom about everything great that went on during his day. He was smiling 24/7, cheering others up when he was sad and being there no matter what. Then, In the end of June 2018, my dad started to act different. He was sleepy, tired and not the same. This was the weekend before I left for camp, and he wouldn’t get out of bed. After about 1 hour he did and we enjoyed the day. But when the school year started, my dad wasn’t him self. He was sad, un happy and not the dad I knew for 14 years. This continued for 4 months, many hospital visits, dr appointments and talks... but nothing helped. We tried to help and he wasn’t seeming to get better, even if he put a smile on his face, it wasn’t true. On September 27th 2018 my dad took his own life. Unfortunately the STUPID FUCKING doctors and EMS responders couldn’t save him. At first I didn’t understand why. And it was the only thing on my mind 24 hours a day. But in late October 2018, I knew I had to make a change! So I started the Conan fund with my mom. So far we have raised over 11k and we Continue to raise. My point for this post is to make everyone aware of mental illness. It can be quiet killer and we need to make a change! REMEMBER that #mentalhealthmatters

Today is bell let’s talk day, a very important day during the year that raises awareness for mental health.
In the past seven months, my dad suffered with a severe case of depression and anxiety. He was unable to receive the help he needed because our healthcare system is not fit for people dealing with mental illnesses. We brought him to hospitals, doctors and psychiatrists, but nothing really worked.
In September 2018, depression made my dad dad take his life.
Since that day, me and my mom have started a charity fund in honour of him. We have raised over $9,000 And are continuing to raise awareness for mental health. We have donated over $7,000 already to Ontario shores foundation for mental health sciences. The money you all donated went to something called Prompt clinic and recovery college. Prompt Clinic allow someone struggling to see and talk with a psychiatrist within 24 hours, and recovery college allows people struggling to learn about their needs and how they can help themselves heal.
The money was split evenly the two places. Please help me, my mom and our charity raise awareness for mental health!
We can do this together.
Today the Conan fund donated $4,500 to ontairo shores foundation for mental health! A large portion that was donated to the Conan fund was donated today.
Thank you for all your contributions! Today we are proud to announce that we took the first BIG step to support mental health! #teamconanfund
