Lakewood Chevrolet Mental Health Initiatives
Recognizing the importance of mental well-being, Lakewood Chevrolet has proactively implemented various initiatives aimed at fostering a positive and supportive environment. Beyond the realm of automotive services, the dealership is committed to making a meaningful impact on the mental health landscape within its community.
Customs Takeover Event
Each year, Lakewood Chevrolet is a sponsored guest to the Customs Takeover Event that displays hundreds of jaw-dropping customized trucks, exotic head-turning sports cars, and unique and rare vehicles from across Western Canada. This event has become an annual event that raises money towards local charities. In 2023, we raised $45,000 towards the Mental Health Association!
First Response to Fashion
Lakewood Chevrolet has demonstrated its commitment to supporting mental health initiatives for first responders by actively participating each year as a sponsor in the “First Response to Fashion” event. This event raises money towards PTSD research for our first responders and front line workers.
A focus on promotion and prevention
Starting with Canada’s youth, Well-being Canada is helping to build a healthier future generation. Our K-12 program empowers students with the essential skills and tools they need to build resilience, foster self-care habits and translate knowledge into impactful action. As we incorporate social-emotional learning and mental health literacy into the core curriculum nationwide, we break down stigma and equip our youth with formidable competencies, championing their lifelong well-being.
And watch for new resources for the family and workplace in 2024!
