About the Payton & Dillon Budd Memorial Ride: At CMHA Kelowna we want to let anyone struggling in silence to know they are not alone. That’s why we are dedicating our Ride Don’t Hide event to the memory of two brothers in our community. The Payton and Dillon Budd Memorial Ride is a rallying point for us all: Anyone can experience poor emotional or mental health. Anyone can be at risk for thoughts of suicide. No one should have to hide or stay silent. On June 24th, join us and ride in plain sight to raise funds for programs and services in our community.
When we hide, mental health stays hidden. When we #GETLOUD about mental health – we help reduce the stigma so more people can get the help they need, earlier. It’s so important that we create opportunities to open up conversations about mental health. In any given year, 1 in 5 people in Canada, from all walks of life, will personally experience a mental health problem or illness and the other 4 will likely be profoundly impacted by it. It is crucial that we, as a community, keep getting loud about mental health so we can continue to help people of all ages access the help they need, when they need it.
