How Does The #1MillionCampaign Work?

The short version: like tentree but instead of planting trees, we fund counselling sessions.

We created this campaign at You Are Collective to help provide support to a variety of grassroots mental health organizations across Canada. We partner with entrepreneurs, businesses, charities and initiatives in the mental health community to create empowering apparel collections, programs, resources, and greater access to services. A minimum of 10% of all money earned as a social enterprise from Apparel, Events, Donations, and Workshops is then donated quarterly to our community partners through The #1MillionCampaign.

We track our numbers diligently + share them with you and our community partners monthly🗓️ Help us keep the conversation going + consider donating to the #1MillionCampaign this GivingTuesday 🙌🎁🖤
It's been a dream of ours to get to work with our local Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society since we first connected.

Now - it's a reality. We can't wait to get to work on making counselling more accessible + affordable for those in need - together 🙌🖤

Repost from EFry:

We are SO excited to announce a new way you can support survivors of sexual assault in our community!

We're joining forces with The Local Counselling Card , an incredible community initiative built by The Local Gift Card & You Are Collective !
The goal: To make counselling more affordable for those in need.

The unfortunate reality is that our counselling waitlist for survivors of sexual assault has only continued to grow. These are not easy times we're all navigating, but if we work together, we CAN help those on waitlists get the counselling they need. ❤

Watch for details on how you can make a big impact by gifting a survivor a Counselling Card for #GivingTuesday coming up next week!

This time last year looked a lot different.

We were able to be in person, attending different events and panels for #Movember and bringing awareness to men's mental health.

We learned so much from listening to other people - their stories and experiences and wanted to make sure we didn't lose that this year.

I wanted to share my perspective from the outside looking in, but also provide you with some extraordinary Men's Mental Health Advocates, Organizations, Campaigns, and Support so please enjoy Part 1 of a blog series celebrating #Movember2020!!

Why Did We Create #1MillionCampaign?

To be able to provide impactful mental health services to anyone and everyone across Canada.

When there are so many rad opportunities our there to support mental health, it's hard to define how you want to best provide for your community. So we got personal, we reflected on our mental health journeys and the gaps and challenges as well as the resources available. We listened to our community and heard a need.

The #1MillionCampaign was created out of living experience to support a variety of local, community organizations offering inclusive traditional and non-traditional counselling and mental health services.

Getting to say "I actually have a resource for that!" has been my all time favourite thing about creating The Local Counselling Card.

A one step directory where all counsellors are:

✔️ Offering free consultations

✔️ Vetted to align with community values + ensure they are registered with a regulatory body and thus qualified to offer clinical services

✔️ Offering low fee therapy

✔️ Registered to accept TLCC (put it on your Christmas list🎁)

✔️ Interested in providing access to affordable and impactful counselling (while reducing neverending waitlists📋)
