2019 CCD Walk for Mental Health Awareness

On Saturday, June 8, 2019, representatives of the North Durham Family Health Team participated in the 14th annual Community Care Durham Walk for Mental Health Awareness.  This event raises awareness of mental illness in the community and serves as a fundraiser to support those who are living with mental health issues. Participants  walked or ran 1, 2 or 5 km from the Fairgrounds to the scenic Port Perry Waterfront Trail, and then returned for a complimentary barbeque.

The Mental health team from the North Durham Family Health team offered resources and handouts to the community regarding services offered at our clinic.

The Walk is a family-friendly event that challenges our communities to talk about mental health in an effort to eradicate stigma.
