Bridges Health is seeking a funding recipient for our upcoming fundraising event:
BREAKING BARRIERS: A Journey to Mental Wellness
An afternoon conference and evening gala dedicated to understanding the challenges to mental wellness in our friends, families, and peers.
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 the 'support systems' of 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?
Breaking Barriers 2020 is going to show us just that.
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 our own struggles.
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!
