We at the Weather Vane Sisterhood are pro mental health. Pro talking about it, pro supporting it, pro medication, pro therapy, pro help, and pro not hiding it.
One of our very own Canadian athletes, Clara Hughes, who is the only athlete in history to win multiple medals in both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games (six in total, if you must know, in speed skating and in cycling) is embarking on a 110-day national bicycle tour through every province and territory, beginning today in Toronto and finishing in Ottawa on July 1. She’ll cover 12,000 km and visit 95 communities. The goal? To grow awareness, acceptance, and action to create a stigma-free Canada around mental illness.
