Why Mental Health?

According to the Kelowna branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, more than 6.7 million people are currently living with a mental health condition here in Canada.

Mental health problems directly affect 1 in 5 Canadians every year, and indirectly affect all Canadians at some point through relationships with family members, work colleagues and friends. Canadians across all provinces and territories are personally affected by mental health problems and around 8% of adults will experience struggles with major depression at some point in their lives. Adults are not the only ones to suffer. In Canada, it is estimated that between 10% – 20% of youth are currently experiencing problems with depression, anxiety and other mental health struggles, as well.

These statistics, as well as the growing importance for discussion around mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic has led Rampone-Marsh Mortgages to partner with the Canadian Mental Health Association right here in Kelowna by donating a portion of every mortgage they process to the CMHA!
