Nothing in this world makes you feel better than when you are helping out others, and with Uber charity rides, you can do so just by riding with Uber. On Saturday, February 20, Uber Toronto teaming up with Jack.org to get Torontonians thinking and talking about mental health with their Uber charity rides program. While 1 in 5 Canadians will develop a mental illness, every Canadian has mental health. Just like physical health. So why is it so hard to talk about mental health in the same way we talk about our physical health? By partnering with Jack.org, Uber wants to generate a discussion to help increase awareness around mental health. And where better to start a conversation than in an uberPOOL? While sharing your ride, try starting a positive conversation around mental health with your fellow rider and driver-partner. A simple conversation can go a long way in raising awareness and helping to end the stigma associated with mental health. Better yet, with this Uber charity ride, Uber Toronto will also donate $1 for every uberPOOL ride on Saturday February 20, 2016 to the Jack Summit—a three day event that brings students together from across Canada to inspire action, develop leadership skills, and create a national network of young people who are transforming the way we think about mental health. Together, Uber can help Canada build a safer, more supportive community, where there’s no shame in talking openly about mental health or reaching out for help with a mental illness.
“As the only 24/7 national help line for youth, Kids Help Phone connects daily with hundreds of young people across the country. We know first-hand the value of an open dialogue about mental health, and how critical it is to address stigma in the community. It can save lives. That’s why we fully support and endorse this unique partnership between Uber and Jack.org.”
