“The funds raised from this event will serve a critical role in the ongoing mission to provide adequate housing for those with mental health disabilities. BMHF has already successfully provided stable and secure housing to 25 individuals, offering them a foundation upon which they can build healthier lives. The goal is to double this impact by reaching a milestone of housing 50 individuals.

“Participants in this walk will directly support the expansion of this vital program, enabling us to renovate existing properties, secure new housing units, and offer comprehensive support in partnership with the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute services to residents.

Chairman James MacDonald, Bermuda Mental Health Foundation, said, “We are incredibly excited to launch the ‘Steps to Mental Wellness’ 3K Walk. This event is more than just a walk; it’s a call to action for the community to stand united in the fight against mental health stigma. Every step taken is a step closer to a brighter future for mental health in Bermuda. The funds raised will directly contribute to our mission of providing adequate housing for those with mental health disabilities. We have already provided housing to 25 individuals and aim to double that number. We are grateful to CG Insurance for their unwavering support and commitment to this cause.”
