27 Mar Rise Up for Mental Health!
Rise Up for Mental Health was held at the Lions Gate Banquet Hall in Barrie, a fundraising event to increase awareness and resources for the Canadian Mental Health Association, Simcoe County branch. Organizer Krystal Wyer spent over two months planning the event, seeing it as a way to celebrate not only how far she has come over the past year dealing with personal depression, but also marking one year since her attempted suicide. “A lot of the vendors at the event have been part of my journey to wellness over the past year,” said Krystal. “Once they heard about the event I was organizing, they asked if they could be part of it.” Guests learned about tools and techniques that assist in greater well-being from the event’s speakers and vendor booths. There were also raffle prizes, 50/50 draws, and other activities for everyone to enjoy. Congratulations Krystal on this amazing event and the celebration of your journey.
