    Living with disability

    @Kimmio that was a horrible experience. I like what @Pinga said that maybe it was a terrible attempt at humour - somehow wondering that makes me feel less like the world is full of jerks. Regardless I would be upset and I feel for you. I hope your body and mind feel better today.

    I gave my first reflection last week

    For Lent my church is having guest speakers in to talk about various issues. They asked if I would do something on mental health. I have had a hugely positive response to this. A few people have asked me to post it to the UCCan Facebook page and/or submit it to the Observer. I don't want to...

    Room For All

    @Pinga sorry to read about your friend - it's always a shock. She sounded uber cool. @Tabitha I'm glad your son is home. I really like the "tune-up" phrasing that is used. It's more less shame inducing than "relapse" or similar terminology. My new psychiatrist is adamant that long-term...

    Thanks. I would take out "for those in distress" . I would say "is not monitored 24/7 or staffed by mental health professionals" If you are struggling you can contact some to talk, text or chat by visiting (Informally we notice that people can believe that theirs is not a "worthy crisis"...

    I know, eh? That's why I asked. I am really trying to get information out about the line. I continue to support Bell Let's Talk but their "help" is often far from the people that folks think its helping. They tend to sponsor big projects. They're a telecommunications company why they couldn't...

    National Mental Health Crisis Line - Please Share!

    It was announced on November 28th. I can look up the news release for you. There was no national referral service. Someone working on the file told me on facebook and I looked it up. I also called the number to make sure it worked. I also asked that they do more communication and have asked how...

    The difference, imo, is that people often come to a spiritual site when in a mental health crisis when they may be more apt to do something untoward to themselves while someone suffering from another ailment may be looking for comfort and support but if they don't find it will move elsewhere...

    I would super appreciate it. thanks Could you make the web address clickable, please? As for getting the word out - communications has been lack lustre on this, in my opinion. I am hoping to find out how to get cards with the info - it's probably best to put cards in the church and people can...

    Room For All

    It's raining, windy and mild in Ottawa. We may hit double digits today. The dullness is hard to take. It's also my Dad's birthday - his fifth in heaven. I miss him most today and April 1st - his unofficial birthday (it's all fool's birthdays). I like the early more awakenings (I got up at 4:30...

    Last week Canada got a national mental health crisis line! There is little being said about it. But when you see people posting numbers please think to reply with the Canadian numbers. Some research suggests that if a person is transferred too many times or gets a number that isn't working they...
