STOP THE STIGMA TEAM

A message from your Stop the Stigma team at Dante.......

What is depression?

Depression is more than feeling sad or grief after a loss. Depression affects your thought, feelings, physical health and behaviors 1 in every 10 Canadians suffers from depression. Do you feel a loss of interest in things you used to enjoy? Do you have feelings of persistent sadness, restlessness, or worthlessness? Have you experienced anxiety, lethargy, or changes in appetite or weight loss or gain? Don't be afraid to talk about these feelings with someone and seek the necessary help. 

Today in the cafeteria during all three lunches, visit information booths and play fun and informative games for prizes to learn more about depression. 

Or join Mr.Quaglia during lunch C in the chapel for a guided meditation session. Meditation is often used as an alternative treatment that often helps people dealing with anxiety to relax their minds and bodies. Staff and students are welcome!

We hope to see you there!

Thanks
