7:00PM - 8:30PM

Hey community, let's talk.

Click here to RSVP

How are you feeling? This past week has been heavy on our hearts, minds and bodies. It has sparked conversations and movements that have been long overdue. In times like these, it is important for us to self reflect, connect with one another and put wellness at the forefront of our daily actions.

We’re hosting a community check-in with Multimedia Artist, Poet, Author and Artist-in-Wellness for CAMH, Apanaki Temitayo M. 

We are here to listen, share resources and strategies to support your wellbeing and mental health. This is your space to reflect, tell your truth and connect with your community. 

This community connect-in is created for Black folks. If you are non-Black POC, we invite you to share this with your friend or organization that will benefit from this space.
