Mental Health

Event Date(s): 
Saturday, December 24, 2022

This year to encourage connection the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force, Stag Leap and leisure athletes are meeting together at 10am on Christmas Eve for a walk, jog or run up to the Montane Hut.

If I were to follow the advice of several Tik Tok and Instagram mental health stories I might come to believe: All relationships are toxic, any child who has energy or difficulty concentrating has ADHD, my moody family members are bi-polar and should be on medication, but most medications do not work, and therapy is a waste of time. Unfortunately, some of this messaging can cause significant harm as it can be difficult to tease out the healthy information from the unhealthy information.
