A Day in Her Shoes in May 2011 was a huge success with a large, enthusiastic crowd gathered in the Market Square Atrium to hear the delightful Valerie Pringle speak passionately about mental health issues in Canada. Read our Blog post from May 2011, recapping the event!
This year, we will again enjoy light refreshments from Market Square restaurants and a fabulous array of spring fashions from Manchester Shoe Salon, Samuel & Co. and Envy. A silent auction and door prizes will add to the entertainment during the event and Elizabeth, as the keynote speaker will round out what is sure to be an informative and enlightening evening.
Tickets are $40 and available at the CMHA Saint John Branch office (15th floor, City Hall) and at Manchester Shoe Salon. They are sure to sell out like last year!
It is our hope that, with your support, the Canadian Mental Health Association Saint John Branch, can continue to provide education programs and community presentations to provide the greater Saint John area with much needed assistance regarding mental illness, and achieving balance in life. Whether it's balancing work and home life, or managing stress, or depression and anxiety disorders, to grieving and feeling angry - they are available to help women in our community who need support.
Look forward to seeing you on May 9th to support this important local association and cause!
