Just a quick note to share some good news

This is the amazingly wonderful work that can happen when people are willing to talk about depression.  I'm very proud of my uncle!!

What exciting news!

I have a friend here in Whitehorse who was certified as a mental health peer mentor earlier this year.

Sadly, she's been facing some huge challenges dealing with the health care system, the legal system, and her daughter's school. There is so much stigma surrounding mental health. I believe she hasn't been allowed to see her daughter at all, not even for chaperoned visits, in almost 5 months.

It breaks my heart to see her suffer so much, when she's done so much hard work to make herself healthy.

More resources for mental health -- yes!!!
