Events hosted by Peace of Mind Canada gives all individuals an opportunity to participate in our journey to creating compassionate communities for mental health. Our variety of events are held throughout the year in person, as well as virtually.
HAVEN (previously named YAMHIS) is a youth-led mental health event that is designed to create a safe environment for young people to share their stories and experiences surrounding mental health. Young people take the stage to speak about their struggles in an effort to empower others. Alongside our speakers, we invite young talent such as singers, dancers and poets, to show others that there are healthy alternatives to use as an outlet to express feelings, emotions and stories. To conclude HAVEN, a designated time for an open-mic session is allotted for anyone in the audience who may want to share their story. Peace of Mind Canada has bared witness to the power of simple conversation, and will continue to create a platform for young people to finally be heard.
The Support Hub is Peace of Mind Canada's peer support group hosted weekly on Sunday evenings. This is an opportunity for young people to speak freely about mental health in all kinds of aspects outside of our larger event HAVEN. Weekly discussions consist of a variety of topics regarding mental health, deep breathing sessions, as well as casual conversation between participants. Whether you are looking for support in others, a place to make new friends, or an opportunity to talk about the stigma surrounding mental health, The Support Hub welcomes you!
*DISCLAIMER* The Support Hub is not a counselling service. Please seek help from a mental health professional if you are in need of a professional counselling service.
Mental Health in the Workplace is an interview session hosted once every month. Peace of Mind Canada invites individuals from a variety of different work places to speak on the topic of mental health, and how that correlates with their job responsibilities. Mental Health in the Workplace is an opportunity for young people to remind themselves that mental health is still important, even for people who have stable and steady jobs. Each session will include a Q&A session where our special guest will answer questions submitted by young individuals seeking advice on how to balance their mental health and work life. All questions submitted will stay anonymous.
