Men's Mental Health Awareness March
Keyano College Parking lot | 8115 Franklin Ave Fort McMurray
DATE: Jun 11
TIME: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
XY Spark in collaboration with Therapeutic Intervention Psychotherapy Services (TIPS) and Dookies Psychological Service presents Walk for Men's Mental Health (Healthier men make healthier communities) Aim: To bring more awareness to the community that more men are impacted by unaddressed mental health, and they need to know that they are valuable
We recognize that more men are impacted by mental health than what is reported, and they do
not feel safe to come forward and ask for help because of societal expectations.
The goal is to walk through the community to bring more awareness about the need for more
employers, employees, churches, schools, and homes to realize that there is a safe space to
access support. Men do not need to feel left out or isolated or ashamed if they are struggling.
Any funding raised from the event will go towards having an ongoing program where we
facilitate group discussions offer mental health support at an affordable cost and provide
mentorship and supports for men both young and young at heart.
