WHAT

 

The Stigma Stroll is a series of charity walks bringing together people in Penticton, Summerland, Peachland, West Kelowna, Kelowna, Lake Country, and Vernon to walk together and end the stigma around mental health. We’re also raising funds for Third Space Life Charity so that counselling can be accessed by anyone who needs it.

Join us for one (or more) of the Community Strolls:

Providing access

 

1 in 5 people in Canada will experience a mental health challenge or illness this year. But what about the other four, how can they help? One thing they can do is provide access to counselling. By each donating $30, their combined $120 donation pays for a counselling session for the one who needs it.

why?

 

I struggled with depression for months before asking for help. No one should feel ashamed to ask for help, and getting help should be affordable for everyone.
— Reid
 
 
 

Third Space Life Charity works to close gaps in mental health in the Okanagan area, providing counselling and special programs to those who need it, but otherwise can't afford it.  We work to remove barriers, end the stigma and normalize conversations surrounding mental health so no one has to battle alone in silence. In addition to our charity, we also have a non-profit third wave cafe (Third Space Coffee) and a counselling centre (Third Space Mind) - all operated out of the Landmark 2 building in Kelowna BC. 

100% of our profits from all Third Space initiatives are poured back into counselling and mental health projects in the community.
