We are proud to announce our Keynote speaker and special guest for Hullelujah, Paul Brandt, the most awarded male Canadian country artist who was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and Western Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2017.
Paul is continually committed to serving and helping those in need through multiple charitable endeavours, notably being the champion for #NotInMyCity, which raises awareness and taking action to prevent and end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The proceeds from Hullelujah will be shared between Hull Services and #NotInMyCity.
One in five children in our community struggle with a mental health challenge; a startling number, a disquieting fact. These children live in neighbourhoods across Calgary and the surrounding area. They are our children. Many of these kids have experienced trauma due to physical and sexual abuse, neglect, loss, grief, and more. Trauma that can lead to serious mental health challenges: depression, anxiety, substance abuse, even thoughts of suicide.
Mental health problems have a huge impact on a child’s development and that greatly impacts their ability to build positive relationships with friends and family, and thrive in the community. And nearly 75 per cent of all mental health problems in adults begin in childhood.
Now here’s some good news. Hull Services is responding to these dire circumstances by helping more than 8,100 children, youth and families on an annual basis. This is accomplished through 28 services and programs staffed by people who have the education, experience, training, and empathy to make a real difference.
PLEASE JOIN US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE THAT WILL CHANGE LIVES AND BREAK THE CYCLE OF TRAUMA IN OUR COMMUNITY ONCE AND FOR ALL.
