This project aims to promote community mental health with a multi-pronged approach. The first piece involves a locally produced video that will highlight community strengths, including community stories, the surrounding natural environment, and the preventative services and supports available within Hinton. The second piece is a mental health and wellness campaign, with materials placed in popular places in the community, including the trail system. The messaging will focus on addressing stigma and encouraging mindfulness and self-reflection. Lastly, the third portion of the project involves mental health toolkits, which will be distributed through non-profit partners. The rationale behind this project is to showcase the community’s existing supports and assets to increase individual and collective resilience in relation to mental health.
