Join us in "holding the hope" at 10,000 Steps for Mental Health

Each of us knows someone who is struggling, and holding the hope during this time is so important. Come “hold the hope” at 10,000 Steps for Mental Health, on Saturday September 21st, 2019 at Shalom Counselling Services. Whether you come on your own, with your family, a friend, your small group, your book club, or with your colleagues, this is an opportunity to make a huge statement of support for those who suffer, to reduce stigma, and to hold the hope for those in despair.  More info at or by calling (519) 886-9690.
