MENTAL HEALTH TALKS
In honour of Mental Illness Awareness Week 2020, I organized a series of conversations with interesting folx about mental health on Instagram Live.
I'll be continuing these chats throughout the year because Mental Health and Mental Illness Awareness (and normalization) is important every week of the year. Join me in my journey as we learn about different therapies, funding, misconceptions, and all things MENTAL HEALTH.
Watch below: (trigger warning- substance abuse, police, grief, suicide, mental illness)
