Finnegan Pihl has been named as one of the 150 Leading Canadians for Mental Health. “At the age of 14, Finn Pihl is building awareness, raising funds and establishing himself as an impactful mental health speaker.”
Finn and the entire Pihl family are ambassadors in creating a more inclusive and engaged community, demonstrating that young people and families dealing with mental illness and substance use problems are indeed, not alone. The Pihl family were leaders in the Not Alone campaign, to raise $2 million in support of Foundry Kelowna, a fundraising collaboration between KGH Foundation and CMHA Kelowna; Finn’s parents, Jody and Sean, are both past board members at CMHA Kelowna; and Finn, at age 11, spoke publicly for the first time about mental health at one of our Women and Wellness events. We couldn’t be happier that his courage and efforts are being recognized.
