“Over the past few years, people have been isolated and having to consistently adjust to new guidelines and regulations…” states Giri Puligandla, Executive Director of CMHA-ER. “Beautiful Minds is an opportunity to bring people together and connect for the sake of their mental health while supporting resources for the community.” Puligandla continues, “Mental health is at the forefront of most people’s minds and it’s important to acknowledge that everyone has mental health; not just those in crisis or dealing with a mental illness. Accessing our programs is focusing on mental health for ALL.”

Bringing awareness to the local mental health resources, programs, and services, the CMHA Edmonton helps equip Edmontonians to make the right call when in distress. All funds raised through Beautiful Minds will support CMHA-ER programs such as the 24-hour Distress Line, suicide grief support groups, affordable housing for people living with mental illness, and many more mental health programs in our community.
