I Am A Face : Faces of Mental Illness campaign
I have been chosen as one of the five faces representing mental illness for Canada on Mental Illness Awareness week! This is a huge honur and I am really excited! During the upcoming year I will get to be part of marquee event on Parliament Hill during MIAW; be featured in national public service announcements aired across Canada; and take part in a national media outreach campaign to tell their stories and carry on the vital mental health conversation in this country. I was chosen out of over 90 applications and I am really excited for all that I will learn in this upcoming year.
