ICMH just completed a beautiful mural created by Cameron Kidd and our community. It was a one month process where we had open talks with our community about what ” mental health and recovery” could look like in mural form. We created a Escher inspired wall of birds taking flight. We need a name for it now!!! Please leave suggestions in the comment section! We will be announcing the name on May 6th when a plaque will be unveiled!!! You can also come into ICMH and enter the contest at the front desk.

ICMH highlighted on CFAX 1070 Wellness Weekend Show

Even though we’re all literally doing it every single day, it can still be one of the most difficult transitions in a person’s life; getting older. There are so many changes that come with ageing – mobility, activity levels, social interaction and overall health. Pam Lewis is a nurse and also the Director of Community Program Development at Island Community Mental Health and part of her job is to support those 65+ as they face some of these changes, including a diagnosis of a chronic disease. Pam talks about the challenges of ageing and how to support the elderly in your life through this transition.
