1 in 5 Canadians live with mental health problems, mental illnesses or addictions. We all have mental health just like we have physical health. We can all benefit from celebrating, promoting & acknowledging the role that having good mental health plays in living a full & meaningful life.
In this edition of “In Conversation With…” host Rob Curwain welcomes Lill Petrella from the Canadian Mental Health Association as well as Christine Dragojilovich from Woodview Mental Health & Autism Services to our CKPC studio. They serve as Co-Chairs of Brant’s Mental Health Awareness Week committee & are experts in the field of mental health. They join Rob in studio to explain why we all need to #GetLoud about what mental health really is.
Topics covered in this show include: What is mental health? What is mental illness? When & how did Mental Health Awareness Week get started? When does Mental Health Awareness Week take place? How can someone contact your organizations if they need help? What events are taking place in Brant during Mental Health Week?
