It's time to Ignite the Magic of Your Mind.
According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, by age 40, about 50% of the population will have, or have had a mental illness.
And an upcoming speaking event aims to help people navigate the challenging maze of mental illness.
“Ignite the Magic of Your Mind is a live mental health speaking event on awareness and wellness tools for anyone looking to improve the quality of their life or support those around them,” said organizer Sarah Pringle.
Proceeds from ticket sales are being donated to Canadian Mental Health Association.
The event is being held May 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at UBCO in Kelowna in the Arts and Science building.
“There will be six speakers ranging from counsellors, breath-work facilitators, coaches and mental health advocates,” Pringle said.
Tickets are $35 plus tax.
People are asked to bring a notebook and pens, as participants may want to take notes.
There will be some movement/dancing throughout the event, so comfy clothes are recommended.
Participants should also pack a lunch and snacks, however, there are some restaurants nearby so that is also an option.
Water, coffee and tea is provided.
