Amanda stands up for mental health

I am extremely inspired and grateful for yesterday’s event. As an example, I was asked by Dan to share my legacy, to open an Equine Therapy Centre for those that struggle with Mental Health issues. I, myself struggle with major depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. To my surprise, some of those that attended yesterday’s event contributed their $20 to me so my legacy could happen. I am EXTREMELY grateful to all that contributed. It is a gift that I never imagined I would receive.

Since my legacy is to open an Equine Centre for those that struggle with Mental Health issues, I have contributed my $20 to Kylie Payne, a friend I met in Lakeridge Health Oshawa ‘s Day Hospital Program for those with Mental Health issues. Like myself, Kylie also took up horseback riding to help with her depression and anxiety. Kylie is unable to work as of yet due to her health issues and struggles coming up with the money to attend regular horseback riding lessons. My $20 has gone towards a horseback riding lesson for Kylie.
