Canopy Children’s Solutions Partners with Baptist Memorial Health Care to “Illuminate Hope” on World Mental Health Day

September 18, 2020

Canopy Children’s Solutions (Canopy), alongside Baptist Memorial Health Care, is excited to Illuminate Hope – Hope Takes Flight on World Mental Health Day on October 10, 2020. This unique experience seeks to bring together communities in one accord to focus on mental wellness, resilience and hope for the future.

“We are in a significant mental health moment and it is critical to be resilient and focused on hope so we may maintain the momentum to move forward,” said Canopy CEO John D. Damon, Ph.D. “Prolonged stress, when left unchecked, can have serious consequences on physical and emotional well-being. Illuminate Hope brings awareness to ways we can improve well-being and reduce the stigma of mental health.”

Illuminate Hope is an experience that participants may enjoy individually or with friends and loved ones in the comfort and safety of their home. As part of the experience, participants can receive a specially-curated box designed to facilitate healthy conversations with activities focused on mental wellness. The experience will feature a lantern release signifying hope for all. The experience includes a variety of levels of support and participation, encouraging an inclusive experience for all.

Canopy invites all individuals and businesses to participate in Illuminate Hope by visiting mycanopy.org/shinethelight.

“Baptist Memorial Health Care is proud to join with Canopy Children’s Solutions on World Mental Health Day to help raise awareness of mental health issues and resources,” said Caitlin Hayden, system community outreach senior coordinator for Baptist Memorial Health Care. “With the increased anxiety and separation from family and friends as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing a global mental health emergency. So it’s more important than ever that we shine a light on this issue and provide access to compassionate care and treatment.”

“We are excited to see social media light up on World Mental Health Day with participants releasing hope lanterns and the message that will send to thousands about the importance of hope,” said Heidi Noel, Canopy Director of Development.  More here.
