On June 8, 1988, at the age of 23, I experienced my first major depressive episode. Six months later, my beloved father, Giovanni Tiberi, took his life. I experienced over half a dozen major depressive episodes between the ages of 23 and 42.
Shortly after my father’s death, I made a quiet promise to do something so that other families would not have to endure what my family experienced. My promise remained unspoken for 20 years.
In 2008, I spoke mi promise out loud. As the fulfillment of mi promise at that time, along with my friend Benny Caringi, we co-founded the charity Hats On For Awareness whose vision is Mental Wellness for All. In 2017, I added another extension to mi promise and created Mi Etcetera a blog to share mi story of recovery, healing and thriving through mental illness.
March with Mi Etcetera in support of the collective voice of MFMHTO and keep mi promise going.
Info from the official event page (2nd Annual March for Mental Health): This peaceful march will start and conclude at Nathan Phillips Square, to raise awareness for mental illness & addiction, and call for improvements to mental health and addictions services.
Through strength in partnerships, we are calling on the provincial and federal governments to provide equitable, timely access to evidence-based mental health and addictions services, by increasing funding and ensuring a full range of mental health services and supports are accessible to every Canadian, when and where needed.
Implementing the above will improve and save thousands of lives each year.
2018 is an election year in Ontario, so bring your signs, your loved ones, and your voice.
