We are all connected
Let's break barriers
In today’s world, it is a fact that someone we know will go through a mental illness. The next conversation is now how to best support ourselves and each other when experiencing mental health problems, as well as supporting those who support others.
How can we increase belonging and show that no one is ever alone when experiencing these issues? How can we normalize mental health challenges and build trust to end the ever-lingering stigma surrounding these issues? Just how powerful is the act of vulnerability, and how can we build trust with those around us?
On January 28, Breaking Barriers 2020 is going to show us just that.
BREAKING BARRIERS: A Journey to Mental Wellness
As we continue our Journey to Mental Wellness, the second annual Breaking Barriers focusses on putting an action to ‘ending the stigma’ of mental health in today’s society, as well as recognizing the strains on the individuals who are the support system for someone with a mental illness.
In the follow up to an epic Breaking Barriers 2019, we will continue to bridge the gap and facilitate attendees in coming together to gain a deep understanding of the pain and fears that our peers are experiencing, and to provide normalization and acceptance of our own struggles.
Breaking Barriers is a fundraising event, with the proceeds from the event being donated to UnderstandUs, a mental health initiative that challenges people to feel, think, and act differently about mental health. UnderstandUs promotes awareness, provides, education, and builds relationships in our communities.
On January 28, 2020 - join Bridges Health along with renowned speakers from across North America, including Clint and Joanie Malarchuk, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe, and Jordan Axani to be a part of this important conversation.
Set in the unique format of an educational afternoon conference and evening gala, it is a do not miss event!
Event proceeds will be donated to 'UnderstandUs'
UnderstandUs is a mental health initiative based out of Regina Saskatchewan. They strive to improve the health and understanding of individuals with mental health barriers, in turn removing the stigma attached to it. UnderstandUs produces awareness campaigns and educates youth through classroom discussions and website resources. They are a young organization that has the ability to connect to youth and make learning about mental health relatable and fun.
Every dollar assists us in breaking barriers to mental wellness in Saskatchewan. The funds will be used to provide tools and supports to those struggling with mental illness, and to promote awareness campaigns to reduce stigma.
Donations can be made via Paypal by clicking the button below, or via cheque made out to Bridges Health, with the memo 'Breaking Barriers 2020'.
