The 10th annual Women and Wellness event will take place on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at the holiday Inn and Conference Centre, St. Catharines. The event features a dinner, keynote speaker and auction tables. Over 400 people are expected to attend. This year’s keynote speaker is Elizabeth Manley, an Olympic silver medalist in figure skating. Elizabeth will share her story of coming back from depression during her Olympic career and her work as a mental health advocate.
The event raises funds to support CMHA Niagara’s immediate and brief services which include crisis supports. These programs offer individuals timely access to the services needed to prevent or intervene in crisis situations. CMHA Niagara offers a range of locally available and readily accessible services that can provide alternatives to emergency room visits. Some of CMHA Niagara’s immediate and brief services include Urgent Support, Crisis Outreach and Support Team (COAST) and Safe Beds.
