1 in 5 Calgarians will experience a mental illness at some point in their life, yet everyday Calgarians suffer in silence. Through this session, participants gain a greater understanding of mental illness. Attendees will learn about the most common mental illnesses, symptoms and treatment methods, what life can be like for people who have mental illness, as well as where and when to seek help for themselves or others
