7 Days of Striking out Stigma
Calgary Rotaract invites ALL Rotarians, family and friends to participate in a week of Striking Out Stigma during World Suicide Prevention Week.
During this time, we remember those whom suicide has impacted and to increase awareness about this devastating issue.

We encourage everyone to take 10 minutes out of their day to participate in Daily Self-Care Activities and to join us for workshops & events, designed to strengthen the connection within ourselves, to others, and throughout our communities.

Together, we can strike out stigma and promote mental wellness.
