On behalf of the board of the Mental Health Association of Yukon, thank you to all those involved in bringing attention to National Mental Illness Awareness week. To those who publicly told their story about their struggles with anxiety and depression – your courage helps eliminate the stigma associated with mental health issues.

The Mental Health Association of Yukon’s board was pleased to launch a program entitled “Living Life to the Full” recently with the generous support from Bell Canada, Government of Yukon and Northwestel.

The group program is provided in southern Canada and is proven to help those struggling with anxiety, obsessions and forms of depression. As well as helping individuals with specific needs, the program is of value to anyone indirectly impacted by mental illness or for people wanting to improve their basic life skills.

For more information about the program please contact Juliette Anglehart-Zedda, program director at 668-6429 (668-MHAY) or email mhayukon2015@gmail.com or stop by Suite 25 1114 Front Street, at the second floor of Horwood’s Mall.

Chair, Mental Health Association of Yukon
