Music For Mental Health
One in five Canadians will struggle with a serious mental health issue at least once in their life. Every Canadian is dealing with something that impacts their mental health. In order to lead a happy and healthy life it is important to be physically as well as mentally well. Many people are unaware of the importance of mental health and are misinformed about what mental health is. This creates a lot of stigma and stereotypes around mental health. Filled with beautiful performances of classical music and speeches from passionate mental health advocates, the Music for Mental Health concert focuses on changing that.
Organized by a dedicated team of Students from Vincent Massey Secondary School, the goal of this event is to raise awareness for mental health issues and break the stigma against discussing them.
The concert is featuring youth aged sixteen to eighteen years old and doctors in the community. Specifically, Anumita Jain on the flute, Josie Ala on the trumpet and piano, Dr. Amit Bagga (past president for the Windsor Essex County Medical Society) on the tabla (a percussive instrument) and Meghan Tran on the violin. Dr. Pat Montaleone (Psychiatrist MD Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital) is the keynote speaker. Be sure to come early as there will be raffle prizes! The raffle will be announced during the concert and refreshments will be available afterward.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Canadian Mental Health Association – Windsor Essex County Branch to support mental health treatment and education in Windsor-Essex.
Cost: $10 General $5 Student
