On January 28, 2020 - join Bridges Health along with renowned speakers from across North America, including Clint and Joanie Malarchuk, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe, and Jordan Axani to be a part of this important conversation.  Set in the unique format of an educational afternoon conference and evening gala, with Special Guest and Patron, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan,  The Honourable Russ Mirasty.  it is a do not miss event!

Breaking Barriers: A Journey to Mental Wellness is expecting over 400 attendees from all walks of life, from business executives to everyday consumers who wish to better themselves and their community. The event includes an educational afternoon conference and networking sessions, leading into an evening gala, dinner, and keynote presentation. Focussing on coming together to gain a deep understanding of the pain and fears that our friends, family and peers may be experiencing, as well as practical applications to resiliency, the intent is to have people start conversations to collectively work towards assisting in finding solutions to further support people and their communities.

Breaking Barriers is a fundraising event, with the proceeds from the event being donated to UnderstandUs, a mental health initiative that challenges people to feel, think, and act differently about mental health. UnderstandUs promotes awareness, provides, education, and builds relationships in our communities.

In today’s world, it is a fact that someone we know will go through a mental illness. The next conversation is now how to best support ourselves and each other when experiencing mental health problems, as well as supporting those who support others.  How can we increase belonging and show that no one is ever alone when experiencing these issues? How can we normalize mental health challenges and build trust to end the everlingering stigma surrounding these issues? Just how powerful is the act of vulnerability and how can we build trust with those around us?

On January 28, Breaking Barriers 2020 is going to show us just that.  Join Bridges Health and the Saskatchewan Business Community, at Prairieland Park, to continue our Journey to Mental Wellness, with a focus on putting action to ending the stigma of mental health in today’s society, as well as recognizing the strains on the individuals who are the support system for someone with a mental illness.
