Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here with Love Your life to Death.
I am back in the studio at Hunters Bay Radio. I have just
completed a wonderful phone interview with the lovely Jody North.
Jody is the program coordinator for Victim Services in Muskoka
and recently launched Mid Aid Muskoka, an incredible organization
I am so excited about. Mind Aid Muskoka is mental health navigation
and support for young people (and their parents or whoever needs it!)
From Jody: This is offered in Muskoka. If you or someone you know
or care about is struggling mentally, we may be able to assist you in getting the help needed. It is not always clear where to start when
you are embarking on a journey to mental wellness. The mental care system is sometimes confusing and hard to navigate and that is why
Mind Aid was created. We are here simply to help and are services are free. If your first step is reaching out to us, we can help you plan
the next ones. That is what we do.
I encourage everyone to listen to the show, check out
Mind Aid Muskoka online or on Facebook. The website is www.mymindaid.com I am so proud of Jody and to everyone who
helped create Mind Aid Muskoka. We have to continue to have these conversations and remove the stigma about mental wellness.
Mental wellness is just as important as our physical wellness. We
need to be proactive and there is no problem too small. If you are struggling, no matter what it is or what you are going through, call
them. Reach out. See how they can help you. We all need help every
now and again. It takes courage and strength to Just Show Up for
yourself first and ask for the help you need.
Mind Aid can be that help.
Thank you Jody and thank you to everyone else for what you do.
I look forward to supporting you in any way I can.
Oh yes, and they have also started a “poop fund” for anyone needing
some additional resources or financial help. Please check them
out and support them in any way you can!
