Rallying their teams to help raise awareness in support of mental health, the Freedom 55 Financial Peterborough Charity Golf Classic takes place at Peterborough Golf & Country Club on July 18th.

Now in its seventh year, the tournament will raise money to help support mental health education and programming provided by the Peterborough Networked Family Health Team. Support initiatives of the mental health program include free counselling/therapy in anxiety, depression, and other life stresses, information and/or referral to community resources and evidence-based trauma treatments and group therapy.

Mike Judson, local weather analyst at CHEX Television, recognizes the importance of ensuring people getting help when it’s needed most. “Many people still don’t understand that mental health issues can be the driving force leading people to a life of homelessness,” says Judson. "It’s events like this golf tournament that help raise awareness, allowing for enlightened conversations to be had in our community. I am honoured to have been asked to be a part of the tournament.”

Tournament Registration and Information is available at Gphsf.ca or by calling Hilary Law at Freedom 55 Financial 705-745-1324 ext. 204 or email Hilary.law@f55f.com.
