On April 25 at the regular meeting of City Council, the Mayor Roy proclaimed Mental Health Week in Weyburn on May 1-7, 2023. The theme for this year is ‘My Story’. Collectively and individually we have multiple layers that make us who we are, and we all have mental health. Canadian Mental Health is encouraging people to use the hashtags #mystory and #mentalhealthweek to share their story.
For a second year The Canadian Mental Health Association’s Weyburn Branch and the Weyburn Police Service have collaborated to promote mental health through a city-wide mental health week initiative.
In the spirit of community and in support of mental health, the Creating Connections – green door hangers will be distributed to serve two purposes:
1. Valuable Resource
a. This door hanger contains a list of valuable resources and supports available within our community for those who may need them.
2. Mental Health Awareness Initiative
a. Hoping the community will support this initiative by placing the door hanger on front doors or mailboxs (visible) to help raise awareness during mental health week May 1-7.
b. Green is the colour used for mental health.
The door hangers were distributed through the Weyburn Review in the April 27 issue to be hung on front door handles during mental health week.
The Mayor’s Luncheon is on May 2 at McKenna Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., featuring Canadian country music artist Amy Nelson.
