Welcome to the 36th episode of Radio Totally Normal Toronto on CJRU 1280 AM and cjru.ca.
This month's episode is about Mental Health and Creativity. You will get an opportunity to listen to a discussion over Zoom between members and staff of Progress Place about how having a creative outlet can impact our mood and mental health.
Several scientific studies have shown that having a creative outlet can help increase positive emotions and reduce depressive symptoms and anxiety.
By no means should any of the information or opinions presented be considered as advice. What we do advise is that the info be taken with a grain of salt and for our listeners to form their own opinions.
We would like to thank all those involved with this episode of Radio Totally Normal Toronto and a special thanks to Catherine, a facilitator from the Toronto Writers Collective, a non-profit organization that provides free creative writing workshops to vulnerable communities in the GTA and other Canadian cities.
Thank you to our listeners and all the members and staff of Progress Place who work hard each month to create a recurring episode of Radio Totally Normal Toronto.
