The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) reports that mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague and that 20% of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Almost one half (49%) of those who feel they have suffered from depression or anxiety have never gone to see a doctor about this problem. The stigma and discrimination attached to mental illnesses presents a serious barrier to not only treatment, but also to acceptance in the community. However, once depression is recognized, help can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected, allowing them to get back to their regular activities.

Statistics Canada reports that in 2013, 23.0% of Candians aged 15 and older (6.6 million people) reported that most days were 'quite a bit' or 'extremely' stressful. Stress carries several negative health consequences including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, as well as immune and circultory complications. Exposure to stress can also contribute to behaviours such as smoking, overconsumption of alcohol, and less-healthy eating habits. In Canada, productivity losses in the form of short-term disability days due to depression, or to depression and distress combined, were estimated at $2.6 billion in 1998.

Current statistics show that mental health is an area of concern not only for adults, but also for our children and youth. CMHA reports that 11% of kids currently have an ADHD diagnosis. This is a 42% increase over the last 8 years and 61% of those diagnosed with ADHD are being treated with medication. In addition, 5% of children are clinically obese; 10-20% of Canadian Youth have a mental illness and 70% of youth report it started in childhood; suicide is the second leading cause of youth death after accidents; 54% of children will have a chronic illness or a risk factor for one, before the age of 17.

We strongly believe, that with compassionate integrated care and support, individuals and families experiencing the effects of stress and mental health issues can move towards optimal wellness. Our mission is to effectively support the wellness needs of our clients by offering the highest quality physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual care.  Our core services include nutrition consulting, individual and family counselling, and spiritually integrated psychotherapy.

The practitioners of Marigold Whole Life Centre - Pamela Kesselring, Catherine Lauber and Gillian Inksettter - are a dedicated team, working with the client to provide personalized solutions for whole person health and wellbeing.

Marigold Whole Life Centre is a business ventrure of Revelation of the Spirit, and will be a sanctuary for wellbeing, focusing on the interconnections between mental health, spiritual health, and nutritional health. We will be opening the centre in the Summer of 2015, and are currently raising money to help fund the start up of this centre.  Our goal is to raise $2,500 through this campaign.  Additional investment opportunities are available to those wishing to invest in this social enterprise.
