…It took me over a year and a half to become comfortable enough to talk about my struggles with depression, without worrying that it might impact others’ perceptions of me. No matter how confident I felt in myself, there remained a nagging voice that told me it was easier to keep this piece of me to myself—until now. Samantha Peck | Founder, Drop the Mask YYC
On May 28, 2022, Drop the Mask YYC will be hosting a fundraising gala in support of mental health awareness, with proceeds going to the Canadian Mental Health Association – Calgary Region. The event has been named as an homage to the safe lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, as well as encouraging attendees and donors to drop the metaphorical “masks” we wear when it comes to our mental health. Drop the Mask YYC aims to take what is typically a solemn topic and create a fun atmosphere where the topic of mental health becomes approachable and easier to talk about.
