Zach's Story

Zach's Story

At times during the pandemic, it feels like the world has stopped.

Yet, the need for Carizon’s work has ballooned as we work to support families struggling with complex challenges – families like Zach’s.

Zach is a young boy returning to elementary school, whose mental health began to deteriorate as he tried to cope with the disruption and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic. After months of isolation, Zach developed anxiety so debilitating that it often turned into panic attacks. He felt overwhelmed by fear and sadness, had trouble sleeping, and was unable to control racing thoughts.

One night, the weight of Zach’s thoughts led to self-harming behaviour that resulted in a hospital admission. Zach, who was previously playful, creative, energetic, and had a zest for life now felt like it wasn’t worth living anymore.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is revealing new challenges to mental health that we have yet to fully grasp. But, one thing is clear, the pandemic has made the need for high-quality mental health services more urgent than ever.

Because of the programs made possible through your support, Zach’s family was immediately connected with Carizon.

Click below to learn about Zach’s journey to recovery and the wraparound supports the entire family received to heal, grow, and overcome one of their toughest moments.
