I’m going to tell you about a journey. As a mother, this wasn’t a journey I ever thought I would have to talk about. In 2012 my daughter began demonstrating behaviour very different from her usual outgoing personality around the age of 15.
My name is Sharon and I want to tell you my story about The Women & Children’s Shelter of Barrie. We will start with the end and that was in January 2012. I did not even realize it was happening – it was more emotional and subtle psychological abuse.
Hi there. I’m Natalie Harris and I’m a City Councilor in Barrie. I have a question for you. What does someone with mental illness look like? What if I told you that someone could look like me? I battled with depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction.
Hi, I’m Shelley. Four years ago, my then 12 year old son Zach decided to run, walk and bike from Barrie to Ottawa to raise funds and awareness for the new Simcoe Muskoka Child and Youth Mental Health program at RVH.
