Jodie Lind, a teacher at Central Algoma Secondary School shared the following with saultonline about an upcoming Event called ‘Stomp Out Stigma’. #StompOutStigma.
“This event is dedicated to the memory of family, friends and students/former students who chose suicide. It is my wish that all those affected by not only mental health struggles, but also suicide, will be able to benefit from the efforts of those involved in this venture – vendors, volunteers and patrons! Together, we can break down the walls of ignorance, #stompoutstigma and support the important programming and services offered through our local chapters of the Canadian Mental Health Association and Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.
This event is a labour of love. A culmination of too many losses; too many negative messages/posts/texts; too many incidents of bullying; too many thoughts, beliefs and feelings of complete and utter isolation. This event is something that has been on my heart for a long time.”
#StopmOutStigma will showcase a wide variety of locally owned small businesses as well as special guests through Canadian Mental Health Association and Project Semicolon.
Tickets are $5 and includes entry for the door prizes!
**Children 12 & under are FREE!** (not eligible to enter draws)
Proceeds donated to CMHA and CASP programming and services.
