Chat4Chad aims to bring awareness, resources, and funding to the people that need it most. Our goal is to carry on Chad’s legacy and remove the stigma associated with mental health.
Chat4Chad has been established in honour of Chad Ringler, my brother, who brought so much happiness and support into the lives of the people he loved while he quietly struggled himself. He was a thoughtful and extremely kind person that never judged anyone.
Chad lost his battle to mental illness on January 22, 2023 and the loss has left an unimaginable void in the lives of his family, friends, and community at large.
Help us make a positive impact in our community as Chad did his entire life. We owe this to Chad and everyone who is struggling! The time is now!
Chat4Chad aims to raise funds for the NEW outpatient WRAP Fund that will support the needs of patients and clients receiving care and treatment through the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit (CAMHU) and the Acute Inpatient Psychiatric Unit (AIPU).
