“We hope this fair serves as a reminder that there are many people who care, and that the community is here to support people with lived experiences of mental health. “
The Niagara Mental Health Fair is an event dedicated to bringing together those in the community who are passionate about mental health. We focus on providing awareness, resources and discussions regarding mental health by offering space for larger organizations, startup or grassroots initiatives and those who have lived experiences to come together. Our goal is to create a space where the community can collaborate on ways to improve services and care for those experiencing mental health distress.
Additionally, this fair serves as a casual space for community members to access information about services in the area. The road to receiving mental health care can oftentimes be complicated and isolating; we hope that having all these services in one room and in a casual setting can eliminate some of the feelings of isolation that can come with navigating mental health settings.
