11th Annual Golf Tournament

We truly believe in our fundraising efforts for Southlake Regional Health Centre and are proud to report that we are leading the way in Canadian Charity Golf Tournaments with over 97% of all funds raised going directly to our Cause!  Once again this year our focus is on Mental Health!

 

 Are you aware that:

  • 15 mental health patients per day present in crisis in Southlake’s Emergency Department every day.
  • Southlake treats a variety of disorders that may include: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia and substance abuse. And, as the population ages, cases of dementia will also grow drastically, putting further demand on crisis mental health care for families struggling to cope.
  • Due to our growing community, Southlake’s Emergency Department has seen a 25% increase in the past three years alone of patients requiring acute psychiatric care.
  • 33% of all Group Homes in the province are located in York Region, 8 of them within walking distance of Southlake. When crisis occurs, these people and their families simply must know that Southlake is able to care for them.

 

Mental illnesses are often invisible, but the drastic shortage of acute mental health in-patient beds in York Region and surrounding communities is a highly visible problem indeed.
