Episode 13 RTNT LIVE on CJRU: Holidays and Mental Health
28 min

This month’s RTNT show was hosted by Clinton as we discuss the holiday season.

First up you will hear Johnny from RTNT interview Megan Kee, the executive director of TwentyTwenty Arts. TwentyTwenty Arts is united by a shared belief that art can influence social change and is a powerful tool for erasing stigma and improving access to care. 20/20 is used to refer to visual acuity and a sharpness and clarity of vision, a sentiment closely aligned with their goals and strategy. From November 19th, 2018 to January 6th, 2019, TwentyTwenty Arts is presenting “Life on the Line,” which is a mental health awareness campaign on the TTC that is raising awareness, visibility and funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association Toronto’s (CMHA) Holiday Gift Program.

One-hundred posters will be exhibited on the TTC Subway from November 2018 to January 2019. Twenty unique designs are available for sale on the TTC Shop website; 80% of all sales will be donated to the CMHA Toronto’s Holiday Gift Program. CMHA Toronto created the Holiday Gift Program over 60 years ago for people living with mental health issues who are isolated during the holidays. The program buys gifts and necessities that are assembled by hundreds of volunteers and delivered by front-line workers.

You will also hear from members of Progress Place who were interviewed about the holidays. Tara, Dan and Julie walked around the clubhouse and talked to various members, exploring how they take care of themselves during the holiday season.
