The success of our mission relies on your help!
In spite of its importance, the mental health sector is seriously underfunded. The Argyle Institute receives no government funding and must rely heavily on charitable donations to be able to continue its valuable work.
The Need is Urgent!
Mental illness is an invisible epidemic: an average of 1 in 5 people you know this year will experience a serious problem with their mental health. By the age of 40, half of Canadians will have endured a mental illness. And yet, only 36% of Canadian suffering from mental illness say that their counseling needs are being met. 
Rooted in our legacy, the Wellness Tree Campaign is inspired by the powerful symbol of the tree whose secure trunk offers stability and support, whose flexible branches are strong yet bending and whose resilient leaves are positioned to shelter and protect.
Help us grow our Wellness Tree to serve more people in need with the purchase of a leaf; green, orange, yellow, red, silver, or gold. Each leaf will be displayed on a mural in the Argyle Institute to recognize the contributions of donors such as yourself.
Every leaf is like a helping hand to someone who cannot afford the treatment they need. Help us branch out to more people this year by contributing to our Wellness Tree.
