It’s time to talk about mental health

Second Chance Recovery in Agassiz changing days, still a go

My sincere thanks to the community and its support of Second Chance Recovery. I wish to mention that our meetings have now been changed to Friday evenings, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., plus for those who wish a wee bit more time, meetings do extend until all leave content and satisfied that their needs and concerns have been met.

A very special thanks goes out to Father John and Becky at the Catholic church for their overwhelming support for our group. I wish to point out that on February the 8, with avid support from Bell Let’s Talk 2012, Canada’s six-time Olympic medalist Clara Hughes will conduct their awareness campaign in support of Canadian Mental Health. Bell will donate five cents to Mental Health for every text and long distance call made by Bell customers and wish to beat last years total which was $3,303,961.80.

Clara Hughes will also be joined be Bells “Let’s Talk Team” Michel Mpambara and Stephie Shock and they invite you to talk about Mental Illness to help fight the stigma. It is a well-documented fact that one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness in their lifetimes, but the unfortunate reality is that most won’t seek treatment because of the continuing stigma around the disease.

Let’s Talk Day sends the message to those who struggle with mental illness that Canadians want to listen and we want to help! Second Chance Recovery not only deals with depression, but addictions as well.

It is a well-known medicinal fact that generally one disease feeds off of the other and this unfortunate combination has made it extremely difficult to determine adequate and proper treatment. Second Chance offers a discreet, safe, and comfortable setting for those who wish to address their personal situation, concerns for their friends, family members, co-workers, and so on. Second Chance Recovery functions by attendance contributions and those wishing to contribute to our cause may contact me, Arnie Kozak at 604-997-3071 for contributions or to discuss more about what we offer the community.
