Event description

Description

Whether we recognize them or not, we are all affected by mental health issues. Some maybe more than others - what makes indigenous youth more susceptible to mental health issues compared to non-indigenous youth?

Healthy Minds Canada is hosting a free Lunch and Learn where we will discuss issues such as social determinants of health affecting mental health, living with a family member who is experiencing mental health issues, supporting personal mental health, and how to recognize indicators early enough to avoid onset of mental health issues. Come join us for an exciting dialogue with experts in the field and individuals with lived experience.
