Radio Totally Normal Toronto, or RTNT for short, is a voice for community mental health; produced by the members and staff of Progress Place, a mental wellness clubhouse in downtown Toronto.
Episode 29 was hosted by RTNT’s Donhaila on May 13th, 2020. This month we’re continuing discussing Mental health and supports during self-isolation.
The episode was recorded using an online platform and all the participants were in their own homes to comply with the social distancing recommendation. We have a double feature this show: an interview with the Warm Line and a teaser of an interview we did with Steven Hughes, a Laughter Yoga Leader and Education Specialist at the Center for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH).
We recorded an interview with the Warm Line so that they may give us an overview of the services they offer. Due to confidentiality we will be leaving them nameless. Thank you to the Warm Line for their involvement with the show this month.
Progress Place Warm Line have extended their hours to offer support to anyone feeling isolated or needing a friendly chat during these times.
Between 12pm - 8pm, Call 416-323-3721
Between 8pm - Midnight, Call 416-960-WARM (9276)
You can also chat online on warmline.ca
The interview with Steven Hughes was so fun that we decided we wanted to show our listeners a teaser so that everyone can tune in next month (June 10th) for the full interview!
Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to keep the RTNT production going through these times.
Thank you to our listeners, and we want to let you know that you are not alone. During these uncertain times, stay connected with a community that supports you can help us go through the worry and overwhelming news. We are here for you.
