Laugh Out Loud Initiative
The George Hull Centre is a hub for children’s mental health, supporting children up to the age of 18 and their families. Operating as an accredited mental health centre, they provide many services such as assessment, therapeutic plans, individual and group therapy for children of all ages as well as their families, information workshops, residential and day treatment for adolescents and substance abuse treatment for adolescents. The George Hull Centre’s Laugh Out Loud Initiative is their annual fundraiser and raises funds to support the centre and for children undergoing mental health issues and depression. Mental health is an important cause for Cooper, especially as it pertains to children. A number of our team members are parents themselves, and all parents want to see their children healthy and thriving. Though awareness is improving, mental health is often an under-funded and under-acknowledged issue and resources can be scarce – especially for children. That’s why it’s important to us to provide support to such a key initiative that opens up possibilities for children and their parents. LOL is just one example of a charitable initiative that Cooper has been supporting over the years. As children are our future, it is imperative that we continue to support and nurture the children in our community.
