2nd Annual Sylvain Lafleur Invitational

 

For numerous years, our dear friend Sylvain Lafleur suffered from generalized anxiety disorder and depression.  On September 22nd 2016, at the age of 29, he succumbed to the disease.  Sylvain was passionate about golf, cars, bikes, fishing and working out.  He had a heart of gold and always lent a helping hand to everyone.  Sylvain left us too early …

In light of the success we had with our first tournament in 2017, the 2nd Annual Sylvain Lafleur Invitational will be held at the Hammond Golf and Country Club on September 29th, 2018.  This tournament will allow us to continue to raise funds and bring awareness to mental health, particularly to suicide prevention. All proceeds raised from this event will be donated to The Canadian Mental Health Association – Champlain East (the “CMHA”), a national organization, with a local branch in Prescott-Russell. The CMHA focuses on promoting mental health to educate our community on issues related to mental health/illness and suicide prevention.   

During the 1st Annual Sylvain Lafleur invitational we raised a little over $25,000.00, which funds were submitted to CMHA. With these funds, CMHA was able to continue their work with their Talking About Mental Illness program, which is targeted to high school students. They conducted a total of 68 presentations in Prescott-Russell in 2017-2018, reaching a total of 1,689 students. Following these presentations, 18 student interventions were conducted as a result of self-identifications with mental health issues or that of a friend or a family member. Education and awareness is key to preventing and reducing mental health concerns from being undiagnosed. Prevention is early intervention.
