S.A.G.E. youth group with be hosting a fundraiser on May 23rd from 6pm-9pm. The fundraiser will be located at the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre. The fundraiser will include live music, delicious food, local art and a silent auction.
S.A.G.E. supports young people who identify outside of the gender binary. The group currently runs once a month and is completely funded by a local donor. We are gracious for the support that we have received, but young people in the group have voiced that meeting only once a month is not enough. The funds raised will go towards increasing the frequency of group meetings, to provide young people with the support they have been requesting.
I am attaching the poster, please distribute widely!
**Also, if anyone is in a position to donate to the silent auction, your support would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your consideration and kindness.

News from CMHA Hamilton
Good morning. I am connecting with you because believe it or not next week is Mental Health Week. Always the first week of May and we have lots of exciting things happening in the community next week.
One thing that is taking place across this beautiful country of ours is encouraging everyone to Shine Green for Mental Health next week. There are a number of ways in which you can do this. If you have a home or business light it up green and upload your information to the website listed below so we can thank you and support you on social media. Or you can dress in green and use the #GETLOUD and upload a pic and show your support that way.
Our goal is to truly make this more than a week but a movement and a shift in the way we talk about mental health in our community.
Thank you for your support.
Take care, Jill
