By Jenny Li, President and Founder of Free Your Mind.
Free Your Mind was created to provide the public with a long-lasting understanding of mental health. We aim to provide our audience with mindfulness strategies that they can use in their daily lives.
Our event, Project Mindfulness, is taking place at the Plaza Theatre on June 1st, from 12 PM to 4 PM. There is a health professional presenting on mental health and wellness strategies. We are inviting representatives from different mental health organizations to provide information on local resources. A variety of recreational activities, such as yoga, are being held to help participants relax.
Project Mindfulness also aims to raise funds for a critical mental health organization, Distress Centre Calgary. A donation box and donation forms will be made available at the event. Our goal is to raise 1000 dollars. All proceeds will go to Distress Centre Calgary, a 24/7 crisis service. More information can be found on their website, https://www.distresscentre.com/.
We hope to see you soon!
