FYI-our tech shirt/event sponsorship ends March 31, so if you know of anyone interested please let them know!  Our form can be found here.

"End the Stigma" Workshop
Location: Rodes Barn, 533 Kings Highway, Woolwich
Date: Monday, April 15th
Time: 7-9pm

Please join us for an important night of education and inspiration as we aim to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.  Courageous club members will share profoundly touching and deeply inspiring personal stories, a panel of experts in the mental health field will provide information and answer our questions on mental health issues, and local resources will be provided.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions during the workshop, but we also encourage you to forward your questions to me earlier via email to have prepared for our experts.  We will focus on several common mental health issues including: Anxiety Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Depressive Disorders and Suicide.

Please note that this is NOT a 2 hour presentation, but an interactive workshop with time set aside for our members to ask questions to our experts privately.

This event is free and each Tri Club member is welcome to bring one non-member guest.  Space is limited so please sign up here!
