Yellowknife, NWT – A new magazine in the Northwest Territories aims to shed light on something many people avoid talking about – mental health and mental illness.
Last week, the GNWT launched Mind & Spirit, a wellness magazine designed to remove some of the stigmas associated with mental health and addiction issues.
Health Minister Glen Abernethy believes the magazine can be part of the healing process.
“This magazine is part of our response to mental health issues in the Northwest Territories and it’s about creating awareness and beginning the dialogue and encouraging people to talk about the challenges they’re facing so they can begin the healing journey or get the tools they need to deal with their issues.”
Abernethy says Mind & Spirit is a resource that will help residents find the support they need.
He says copies will be circulated to health centres across the territory as well as magazine racks.
