JOIN OUR TEAM AND HELP SUPPORT CARE CLOSER TO HOME IN THE MOMENTS THAT MATTER MOST!

The Defeat Depression campaign is a national fundraiser designed to encourage individuals and organizations to raise funds to support local mental health programs and services.  The RVH Foundation is grateful to have been chosen as the charity of choice for the 2021 Barrie Defeat Depression Virtual Event and for their meaningful support of the RVH Simcoe Muskoka Regional Child and Youth Mental Health program.

Thank you for your support!

Access to mental health care closer to home is vital to providing better futures for young people in our community. Seventy per cent of mental illness has its onset in childhood and adolescence. Early intervention and a proper support system equips youth with the coping tools and strategies they need and can also help offset a future mental health crisis in adulthood. Without services, their journey to recovery could take much longer.


Donor generosity ensures that RVH is able to continue providing the best possible care to children and youth in our region, in the moments that matter most.
