To provide increased public awareness and financial support for Wounded Warriors Canada, the Wounded Warrior Run BC was created. A team of dedicated runners will relay-run the length of Vancouver Island in just seven consecutive days, starting Monday, February 19th, 2018 and finishing Sunday, February 25th 2018. The journey will begin in Port Hardy and end in Victoria, covering almost 600 kms.
For the past 25 years, Dr. O’Flaherty has been a catalyst for healing through many traumatic situations. Dr. O’Flaherty has responded to the Pan AM Lockerbie air disaster in 1988, TWA Flight 800 in 1996, and the aftermath of 9/11 in New York. More recently, she responded to the aftermath of the Mandalay Bay Las Vegas Shooting, primarily debriefing first responders including the coroner’s staff.
This year during CMHA Mental Health Week, Canadians are speaking up: we’ve been in line for mental health care for way too long. We can’t wait anymore. We are literally sick of waiting. But we’re not only waiting for mental health care. To be truly mentally well, Canadians also need psychotherapy, counselling and community-based mental health services and programs; we need acknowledgement and respect; and we need adequate housing. This CMHA Mental Health Week, May 1-7, Canadians are writing their MPs, speaking out on social media, and donating our time and money, all in the name of getting loud for mental health.
Please note that 2018 dates are still to be confirmed.
