WatchVictoria's Connections Place is one of 330 Clubhouses around the world, supporting those living with mental health challenges. Now, you can support this vital non-profit, and maybe get a sweet treat too! Veronica Cooper has the story.

Founded in 2016, Victoria’s Connections Place is one of 330 Clubhouses around the world, supporting those living with mental health challenges.

The Clubhouse, located at 3375 Oak Street, evolved from Moms Like Us, which was formed two years earlier in Victoria, by a group of passionate parents and caregivers of adult children living with mental illness.

Now, another mother has stepped forward to fundraise, and raise awareness, of this vital non-profit.

Marian Paris, founder of Paris Roka Candy, lost her son Daniel in 2013, after supporting him through his debilitating challenges with his mental health.

Marian is donating $2,500 to Connections Place and hopes to encourage others to match her donation, bringing a total of $5,000 to the Clubhouse.
