Men's Shed Vernon & Mental Health Featured on Local Podcast
We recently had an opportunity to exhibit for Men's Shed Vernon, when CMHA hosted the local chamber of commerce "Business After 5" social function.
I met a sharp guy there, named Derrek Mooney. Through personal experience as a result of a family loss, Derrek also became aware of the vital importance of good mental health.
Derrek Got HELP through CMHA Vernon.
With a friend, Derrek started Awareone Apparel to raise awareness, and some funding for Canadian Mental Health Association in Vernon.
Derrek is a BIG basketball fan. Even their team is getting the conversation going by asking the question "What does mental health mean to you?"
Derrek also hosts a local Podcast featuring interesting people he meets in Vernon. More than twenty five guests have spoken about their lives and mental health. Well...one thing led to another, and I found myself on the other side of the microphone for one of those chats.
Belonging is a big part of Well Being:
Guys are social. This pandemic has highlighted that point very well. I hear "I miss The Shed" often. Your "opt in" interest in staying in touch through this newsletter is another example of our desire to stay connected.
Here's Why We Need To Be Counted As Members:
We get to learn together, when we might not have gone at all if we were alone.
As a recognized group, we have access to resources, and speakers on mental health, physical, health, and on well being as care givers or those who care for us.
Like this package of resources on prostate cancer we just received. I bet you don't talk about this stuff at the coffee shop! We can, and do, at the Shed. You'll live longer...
We need you ...for all these reasons. Help your community, help us guys, help yourself...
