The PILS App Fundraiser

Hello everyone and thank you for reading more about The PILS App.

As you all may know. I am a very big advocate for more mental health support for people who have gone though pregnancy and infant loss. 
This year we are bringing together an idea to allow access to mental health support at people's fingertips with the PILS App.

Please join me in making a difference! I'm raising money in aid of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Centre to create The PILS App and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

The PILS App is a mental health support resource tool for those who need support after pregnancy or infant loss.

The PILS App is rooted in the pregnancy and infant loss support centre in Calgary, Alberta.

The PILS App will serve as an extension of the work that the PILSC does at the centre. It will be a free resource that provides those who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss access to grief support. The app will connect bereaved families across Canada to community, peer support groups, traditional and alternative healing supports, and educational opportunities.

During this Covid-19 health crisis, we are seeing more than ever the need for accessible mental health care. People who have gone through pregnancy and infant loss often do not know where to turn, with this app we hope to improve their access to mental health care by creating a tool with mental health supports at their fingertips.

 The PILS App  will be the only app in Canada specializing in acute crisis support for bereaved families. Each person impacted by loss is vulnerable to long term mental health challenges. The app will approach the challenges faced by bereaved families in the following unique and innovative ways:

The PILS App provides support across all stages of the loss journey (initial grief, trying to conceive, pregnant after loss, and parenting post loss).

The PILS App will be the only one in Canada that proactively addresses the impacts that pregnancy and neonatal loss has on people who identify within vulnerable sectors such as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) and the LGBTQ2S+ community.

The money raised in this campaign will help us move forward with development of The PILS App.  Anything over and beyond the $5000 goal will go directly into the PILS App continued development and design.

Any donation of over $250 from businesses associated with mental health support such as mental health practitioners, medical professionals, yoga, gyms, healing resources/ products, etc. will automatically be put into our directory for 2 years!
