Today I have some exciting news to share. I am the new Partners for Mental Health Community Correspondent for Toronto, Ontario. Exclamation points! What that means is that I am taking a more active role in the social movement of transforming how Canadians think and act about mental health.
Partners for Mental Health is a Canada-wide not-for-profit registered charity whose goal is to contribute towards transforming how people think about and act towards people living with a mental illness. They do this by:
Encourage people to pay more attention to their own mental health and well-being.
Positively change attitudes and behaviours towards those living with mental health problems or illnesses.
Help change policies to improve the mental health system.
Increase funding for programs, services and research.
Create Positive Spin has been a place where I document how I create positive spin in my own life. Making mental health a part of the discussion is already important to me.
As a Community Correspondent for Toronto, I’m looking forward to bring awareness and work towards enacting change in the field of mental health.
So, consider this a formal invitation to follow me via social media to connect over mental health and positive spin. And you can also follow Partners for Mental Health on Facebook or on Twitter. Stay tuned for more about their upcoming campaign about mental health in the workplace!
