On behalf of the board of the Mental Health Association of Yukon, a big “thank you” to the sponsors, supporters and especially the people who came out to participate in our first annual Steps to Positive Mental Health walk and barbecue.

We know it can take courage to publicly express your support for the importance of positive mental health and the elimination of the stigma associated with mental illness.

We acknowledge the leadership displayed by Mayor Dan Curtis and city councillor John Streicker who participated in the walk.

As well we wish to thank Heath Minister Mike Nixon, NDP MLA Lois Moorcroft and NorthwesTel’s president and CEO, Paul Flaherty, for showing their support for the barbecue and for attending our annual general meeting.
