No Mental Health Camp Vancouver 2011 – hopefully in 2012!

2011 June 10

This year has been incredibly tough on both Isabella and I. We’ve been facing a number of challenges that, despite the help we’ve been extended (thanks, JP and Terra, and those who answered my call for volunteers), make us believe it’s best to not organize Mental Health Camp Vancouver this year.

It was a hard decision for us. Mental Health Camp has been a labour of love and an important project for us, and we don’t want to discontinue it. But as I told Isabella, I felt that organizing MHCV 2011 would have compromised my own mental health, by overextending my capabilities and adding stress to my life. Ironic, eh?

We thank everyone who has wanted to get involved with the project and we hope that 2012 will be a better year for us to be able to organize Mental Health Camp again.

    Raul and Isabella:

    I respect your decision SO much. It’s only in taking care of ourselves first that we are able to extend our efforts to building community, and the bridges between people.

    Hopefully we can also join you in a Mental Health Camp in Victoria.

    Kudos to you for being in the mental health field! I’m sorry that you won’t have camp this year, but everyone needs a break here and there. My specialty is emotional intelligence. Part of developing your EQ is knowing when to rest so kudos to for taking a break!
