Sudbury Defeat Depression is an annual walk/run event in Sudbury, Ontario. We are looking for people who are passionate about mental health. As many as one in five Canadians will experience mental illness this year and the need for mental health services has never been greater. Persons with lived experience or those who have a close family member or friend who has experienced depression, or another form of mental illness are encouraged to join.
Funds raised from the event support the Northern Initiative for Social Action (NISA) as well as the Mood Disorder Society of Canada. NISA is a mental health organization run by and for people with lived experience with mental health challenges.
