A number of organizations in Flin Flon will be part of Bell Lets Talk Day tomorrow. One of the organizers Ebony Trubiak says it’s a national campaign to help raise awareness about mental health. She explains we know that mental health problems affect about one in five people each year and stigma is one of the biggest reasons why people that have mental health problems don’t get help and so this campaign promotes the need for people to start having conversations about mental health in our communities including our schools, our homes and our workplaces and to learn ways to help better support people.
Some of the Lets Talk Day events are planned at the Flin Flon Community Hall, local schools, the Public Library, the Aqua Center, Sal’s Fitness, the Orange Toad along with a wellness walk to Pharmasave. Posters promoting events can be found around town.
