On behalf of the Nursing Course Union (NCU), the Ryerson Student Emergency Response Team (RyeSERT) and the Mental Health Summit Planning Committee I would like to welcome you all to the Mental Health Summit 2015: Transforming the Future of Mental Health. And if you’re a visitor from out of town, welcome to Toronto, Ontario!
I hope you all enjoy this summit as it provides you with various interactive activities. From informative and inspiring speakers to interactive workshops/sessions. We do offer time for you to de-stress and relax through a dog therapy session, and learn more about self-care through our speakers and other workshops/sessions. We’ll end the night with laughter as we entertain you with improv comedy, as you know, “Laughter is the best medicine”. So there is something for everyone!
I do hope that this summit will help enhance your skills and knowledge, as well as the development of new ones, to be able to support others and care for your own mental health. And continue to inspire one another and create a new perspective about mental health. Gather what you can and apply it to your own life. Whether it’s aiding others, or taking time out of your day to practice self-care, your health is as important as others’.
Perhaps today, or even tomorrow and the days after that, I hope you can make a difference in someone’s life. For all you know a hug, a smile, an open mind and an open ear can make an impact. And may you be able to help foster an open and accepting environment for all.
I look forward to meeting with you
