“Mental Health and the Way Things Stand”

Date: Sunday, January 13, 2013 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Sermon by Rev. John Marsh, Minister of First Unitarian, Ottawa.

Concerns about mental health have been with human communities from the beginning of recorded time, yet it remains an underfunded and often misunderstood area of healthcare.  People with mental health issues and their families continue to be stigmatized.  Advances in understanding have been accomplished by Canadian Unitarian pioneers in the field such as Joseph Workman and Brock Chisolm.  New advances promise a healthier future for all of us.
