CMHA finishes up mental health awareness week with hotdogs and dodgeball

The Thompson branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) organized a free barbecue lunch outside their office on May 10 to cap off this year’s mental health awareness week.

Throughout May 6-10, CMHA hosted a variety of events in the community to try and pitch their services and engage with local residents about issues related to mental health.
