The Stigma-Free Society has just released their new Rural Mental Wellness Toolkit!

The Stigma-Free Society created the Rural Mental Wellness Toolkit to let individuals living in rural communities know that it is OK to reach out for help and that they are not alone. We all have mental health, and it is just as important as our physical health.

Inside the toolkit you will find engaging resources for audiences including youth, families and seniors. The Inspiring Stories for You section showcases videos of rural residents who open up the conversation around mental health and stigma. Peer Support Facilitator Training Program in collaboration with Robyn Priest LIVE YOUR TRUTH will be offered in the upcoming months for people living in rural communities, who can then create peer support groups.
