Wellness Tree

The Wellness Tree Campaign 2019

Consider this: an average of 1 in 5 people you know this year will experience a serious problem with their mental health. By the age of 40, half of Canadians will have endured a mental illness. And yet, only 36% of Canadian suffering from mental illness say that their counseling needs are being met. [1][2]

By supporting the Argyle, you can help play a part in closing this gap.

For over 35 years, the Argyle Institute has been providing affordable therapy, scaled to accommodate the varying ranges of financial and economic realities faced by Montrealers. As a charitable organization, we are able to do so thanks to the support of donors such as yourself.

Following a difficult fiscal year in 2018, the Argyle is embarking on its 2nd annual Wellness Tree Campaign to raise funds to allow us to continue to provide services to those in need.

The Wellness Tree Campaign is inspired by the powerful symbol of a strong, deeply rooted tree that reaches far to shelter and protect. Last year we were grateful to have received $16,422.33 for the campaign. This year, we are pleading with you to spread the word and give what you can to help us reach our goal $50,000 this year.

In addition to keeping the Argyle running, investing your donation dollars in the Argyle means that you can be involved in aiding:

  • a person struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts
  • a couple plagued with conflict and detachment
  • an adolescent grappling with identity and anxiety
  • a family wrought with strife

Help us grow our Wellness Tree to serve more people in need with the purchase of a leaf: green, orange, yellow, red, silver, or gold. Each leaf will be displayed on a mural in the Argyle Institute to recognize the contributions of donors.


Every dollar helps to sprout a leaf and every leaf is like a helping hand to someone who cannot afford the treatment they need. So, any contribution is greatly valued. Help us branch out to more Montrealers this year by contributing to our Wellness Tree.
