Rural Mental Health
 Unique Challenges, Unique Solutions

Join us of our upcoming event, Brunch with Séan McCann!

Séan McCann will be performing “One Good Reason: A Story of Addiction, Recovery, Music and Love” to help educate people about addiction and share his story.

Kicking off the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Week, the event will be held at 10:00am at the Heritage Inn and Convention Centre on Saturday April 30th 2022 and be open to all members of the community. Tickets cost $35, or tables of six for $200, and are available through Eventbrite or the City of Brooks, Town of Bassano, Village of Rosemary, Village of Duchess, Steaming Cup and the Lobster Mobster.

Due to the sensitive nature of the content, this event is recommended for ages 14 and over.

The Rural Mental Health Conference was first held in 2018.  Conference organizers believe that rural communities and mental health care workers face unique challenges and must employ unique solutions to help their communities succeed.

The RMH Conference aims to:

  • Celebrate programs being implemented in rural areas.

  • Share ideas/practices and build capacity of rural health care providers.

  • Bring delegates from across the province to Brooks to showcase our programs/facilities.

  • Raise the profile and awareness of rural mental health and form relationships with other communities to advance the practice.

At this time, there are no plans in place to host another full scale conference. The Rural Mental Health Committee continues to plan events and activities which improve the quality of life and mental health of the residents in our region.
