Mental illness is often considered a taboo topic surrounded by misinformed stereotypes; but events such as camh Darkness to Light will help dispel such negative associations while also ensuring monetary support for such a worthy cause. It's an all-night challenge taken up by friends and family in a fun and eye-opening way.
As written on the camh Darkness to Light website, "Mental illness can take some people to the very edge of darkness. For the most fortunate, family members and friends are at their side, often staying up all night to provide comfort and support -- a bright light amidst the chaos and despair." This kind of support is being taken to the next level on May 29, 2015. Once the challenge is completed, people are asked to share a #sunriseselfie to shine a light on mental health.
