Whatever It Takes (WIT) Fund
The Chilliwack Mental Health Centre has established a fund through the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation to raise donations that will benefit the health and dental needs of individuals coming to our centre struggling with a mental illness. Many people with mental health challenges live in poverty on less than $12,000 each year. Provincial disability often does not provide enough financial support to allow for the dental care or medical supplies that these individuals require for their continued well-being.
Chilliwack Mental Health has partnered with FVHCF to create the Chilliwack Mental Health Whatever It Takes (WIT) Fund. Our goal and hope is to be able to help our clients acquire the health care they need when no other resources are available. As health care providers, we see the suffering that poverty brings to human beings, especially those who are marginalized due to a mental illness.
