Shop at these Queen West stores on One Brave Night

The fundraiser for CAMH breaks down the stigmas associated with mental illness


On April 7, thousands of Canadians will be staying up late – possibly all night – to help raise awareness and break down the stigmas associated with mental illness. The third annual One Brave Night is a fundraiser for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. More than $1.5 million has been raised, which has helped create three new youth clinics, test new treatment options and improve facilities at all of CAMH’s locations.

For the first time, a number of businesses near CAMH’s Queen West location are stepping up for the cause. Spending money at these retailers on April 7 will help further support One Brave Night fundraising efforts. We’ve broken down the participating businesses by deals and proceeds below:
