Creston, BC – April 16, 2020: Taking care of our mental health and well-being is a priority during times of stress and uncertainty. In our current COVID-19 environment this is especially true. We often find it difficult to admit that we are struggling with our mental health; however, it’s important to remember that we are all in this together. In the words of Melanie Mark, Provincial Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training, “No matter what – we need to break the stigma when it comes to mental health.”
