Montreal walks for mental health

October 15 interested individuals and mental health organizations participated in a walk in Montreal to raise awareness about mental health and to reduce stigma associated with mental illness. Mayor Denis Coderre addressed the crowd gathered at Philips Square. There's a public concern that greater resources be allocated towards helping people who suffer mental illness. The crowd of nearly a thousand people walked towards Rue de Bleury, back along Boulevard de Maissoneuve towards Rue de la Montagne and back to Philips Square, where members of Donald Berman Up House did a dance performance and invited everyone to join in. more photos below the jump
