Background: A Dollar A Day Foundation was established to raise funds to close the gap between the availability of mental health and addictions programs and the growing need for them.

Everyone gives a little--A Dollar A Day. We put our small change to work for big change. And as we do, we'll create a social movement and build a stronger voice to make mental health a higher priority. Please join us as we present our donation to the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s HEADSTRONG program on Friday, February 22, 2019 at 11:00 a.m., at the Health Research Innovation Centre Atrium, Foothills Medical Centre, Calgary, AB.
