Shelly Virville from the Hope North Suicide Prevention Committee spoke about mental health and life promotion….
“We all can take small steps to mental wellness and can all benefit just like we benefit from looking after our physical health and we can also benefit from looking after our social, our emotional, our spiritual wellbeing.”
Virville went on to say social connections can help manage stress. Some of the things you can do to promote wellbeing include finding ways to stay positive, being active and connecting with others.
