Maryvale is a local agency that helps youth in our area who are facing mental health issues, counselling, day treatment and the Rotary Home for quick intake of youth at high risk for suicide.
Connie Martin, Executive Director of Maryvale stated that “The influx of the enormous donations receive through this yearly event allows us to hire additional full time therapists to significantly increase the number of teens seen who are currently waiting for counselling-which is a high demand area. In excess of 100 teens that were in great distress were counselled quickly last year due to the Stigma Enigma donation. These teens may otherwise have had to wait extended periods of time for counselling or fallen through the cracks.”
About Ginger Zee
Good Morning America, Meteorologist, Ginger Zee is known to millions as the face of the ABC News’ meteorology team, as well as for her third place finish on the 22nd season of Dancing with the Stars. Zee’s story goes far beyond the confines of television. With the release of her New York Times best-selling memoir Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I am One, Zee brings readers along the immensely difficult path that took her from a depressed fledgling meteorologist to the first female chief network meteorologist at a network. But as she puts it, by chasing these storms she was avoiding the real one brewing at home—a string of misguided relationships, including a horrifically abusive one that wouldn’t end until she was forced to call the police, and a deep soul search that lead her to check in to a mental health hospital ten days before starting her job at ABC. Zee was struggling with significant mental health issues that went undiagnosed until she entered that inpatient therapy and began—slowly but surely—to get her on track.
Zee will share her personal story and struggles with depression and suicide at the 5th Annual Stigma Enigma Mingle For Mental Health in Windsor, Ontario on November 3, 2018.
