Spreading Awareness, Reducing Stigma! MIAW 2016 is October 2nd – 8th

During this Sunday’s (Oct. 2nd) morning worship hour, our message will be brought by Russ Sanche, Youth Outreach Coordinator from The PORTAL.
Next week – October 2nd to 8th is Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness.

So the theme of Russ’s message is “Walking Beside”, helping us understand our role and our posture, when to give, when to speak, how to let go and love people where they are at. He will be bringing real stories from real people in our community. Check the link below for resource information on Mental Health here in Nova Scotia:
