During the day, there will be multiple booths set up with different mental health practitioners and wellness practitioners. Ranging from traumatic experiences to aromatherapy, massage therapy, smash therapy and much more,” stated Beaudry.
Afterwards, there will be a free dinner for the first 65 people to RSVP to the event, paid for by sponsors.
Sponsors for the event are:
- Matt Anderson -IG Financial
- Rose Valley Pharmacy

After the meal, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm, two speakers will take the stage and speak about mental health.
Chris Beaudry will take the stage to speak about Mental Health and Grief, and Adrienne Michelle will follow up by talking about the Gut & Brain connection.
The event was to take place before the COVID-19 pandemic, but Beaudry states the event is more important than ever with the last couple of years affecting people's mental health.
“We wanted to show people that you don’t have to go hundreds of miles away to find [mental health support]. There are people in your local community to assist you on your wellness journey.”
