This day-long event was intended to help our community frame a pathway forward in healing through messages of HOPE.

We heard from a wide variety of individuals from various backgrounds. Watch videos from the day below.

Our next Framing a Pathway Forward event is set to occur on September 10, 2021.


Some of the day's highlights:

Our Collective Journey

Our Collective Journey is a peer support group formed in Medicine Hat that encourages individuals experiencing mental health and addiction issues to step out from behind the heavy curtain of shame.

Two of the founders, Ryan Oscar and Rick Armstrong have both experienced their own personal darkness and share stories of how they moved through that darkness and into a new light.


Let's Talk About Resiliency: Breanne Mellen and Allysa Larmor

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness and addiction disorders.

Join Breanne Mellen our Suicide Prevention Coordinator and Allysa Larmor our Suicide Prevention Educator as they walk us through "Don't Just Survive, THRIVE." This is a presentation on how to overcome the challenges and disappointments that are an unavoidable part of life and get back to being the creator of your life.
