SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH & ADDICTION PROGRAMS IN SURREY.
For many years, mental health has been avoided by many because of the stigma attached to it.
It has become more and more apparent to us as first responders the severity of these issues.
In our response to calls we see children in homes living in poverty because their parents aren’t mentally equipped to prove care needed.
Kids sent to school without lunches or warm clothing.
We see mental illness driving people to addiction and pushing them into the streets, which inevitably leads to a rise in crime.
We know that when a mental illness is caught early, the success of treating it is much higher.
We are committed to addressing this important issue.
It feels good to help, leave a legacy donate to the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society.
