SPIN FOR RECOVERY
Get in shape and help create hopeful futures for young adults with serious mental illness. Join us on June 9 for SPIN FOR RECOVERY.
Join us for more than a great workout – Spin for Recovery and help create hopeful futures for young adults with serious mental illness!
Eli’s Place will be the first of its kind in Canada, based on the 106-year old proven-effective Gould Farm model, providing long-term residential treatment in a rural environment where participants will develop the skills to recover from their illness and to move from survival to living, and from mental illness to hopefull future.
Named after Noah’s brother Eli, Eli’s Place will bring hope to young adults 19-35 years old with serious mental illness, like Eli. Eli was a great intellect and music lover with lots of dreams and plans. His battle with mental illness began in his late teens and ended just before his 31st birthday when he couldn’t fight any longer and took his life.
Effective treatments exist and together, we can make them available in Canada at Eli’s Place. Join our fundraiser for recovery today. Space is limited – sign up: http://bit.ly/SpinForRecovery/
June 9, 2019, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm at Legacy Indoor Cycling Studio, 1506 Danforth Ave, Toronto. Get more details on the event page here.
On behalf of everyone at Eli’s Place, we wanted to send a warm thank you for joining us at From Mental Illness to Hopeful Futures: Innovations in Treatment!
It was heartwarming to be joined by an enthusiastic crowd interested in making a difference in the lives of young Canadians struggling with serious mental illness. Thank you for taking the time to come together around this critically important issue.
David and Deborah Cooper’s dream of launching Canada’s first rural residential long-term treatment centre for emerging adults with mental illness has come a long way in the last year.

Together, we will plant the seeds where recovery grows. You can watch two of the lectures from the evening below, or find them on our YouTube channel here.
There is a tremendous gap in our mental health system for young adults, aged 19 to 35, with serious mental illness. Eli’s Place will provide a long-term, rural residential treatment and recovery-based program.
The first of its kind in Canada, Eli’s Place will offer individualized therapeutic care with a graduated transition into the community. A range of programs will promote recovery and resilience through the acquisition of life and work skills needed to move from survival to living, and from mental illness to hopeful futures.
