Mental Health in the North

When it comes to our mental health, talking is the first step to meaningful change and greater acceptance. If we can be open with each other, if we can share with each other in a supportive environment, then we can begin to tackle an issue that’s important to all Northerners.

Northwestel presents, Jessica Holmes 'Depression: The Comedy'

Jessica, a CBC Comedian and Bell Let’s Talk Ambassador, is devoted to helping others live well. In her wellness keynotes, she mixes humour with her message about the importance of de-stressing and laughing at life’s shortcomings, and speaks with intelligence and insight on her own experiences of dealing with depression, finding work-life balance, and re-igniting passion.
