Loneliness and Black Mental Health

Webinar

This past March 2nd marked the first time Black Mental Health Day was recognized in Ottawa. But what are the factors that negatively impact Black Mental Health in Ottawa and Canada at large.

During this webinar, Mental Health Advocate Chelby Marie Daigle, who has been publicly speaking about her own experience living with chronic depression since the age of 17, will explore a serious public health issue, which has a tremendous impact on our mental health, but is often overlooked in our conversations on the subject-loneliness.
 
What is loneliness and more importantly what is the opposite of loneliness? Why might Black people, and Black women in particular, face an increased risk of loneliness in their daily lives? What steps can a person talk to address loneliness in order to improve their overall mental health?
 
Join Chelby Daigle to explore these questions on June 25th.

“Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”
