“Spirituality and Mental Health,” was the topic of an interactive panel discussion held October 2014, featuring spiritual and mental health experts. This event was attended by 125 people from the Estrie region and beyond. This proved to be a very thought provoking discussion on the interdependence between spiritual, physical and mental wellness. The discussion was very well received as evidenced by the audience’s participation, and feedback.
One community member stated, “I was very surprised by the perspectives the different professionals took. They gave me hope.”
