Addiction and Mental Health
In the wake of the overdose crisis in BC, we felt that it was important to incorporate a workshop that provides attendees with an insight into the connection between substance abuse and mental health.
Nutrition and Mental Health
A workshop regarding the connection between physical and mental health, and how good nutrition and physical exercise can aid in the process of recovery, and symptom management.
This panel will include 5 individuals from different cultural/religious backgrounds, and will open up a discussion regarding the different approaches and stigmatization that occur across different communities. We hope to attract individuals who perhaps are suffering from mental illness whose family members may not completely understand their situation.
