KAWARTHA LAKES-The Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) announced the details of the sixth annual Ride Don’t Hide for Mental Health event today.
This year’s event will be happening in-person at Nicholls Oval in Peterborough on June 18.
The funds from the 2022 Ride Don’t Hide event will support CMHA HKPR’s new Mobile Mental Health and Addictions Clinic, which is being launched this year. The clinic will serve the counties Peterborough, Haliburton, Kawartha, and Northumberland providing mental health and addictions care to under-resourced and underserviced communities.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘move more, stress less, cope better.’
“Recognizing the toll that the pandemic has had on mental health and that so many individuals don’t feel like themselves these days, Ride Don’t Hide is a welcoming, inclusive community event that brings friends, families and local community members together and encourages them to move more, stress less, cope better.” said the organization in a press release.
