I gave my usual talk about depression and looking after your mental health. It was a great crowd that stayed engaged throughout the presentation and there were some really good questions afterwards. Smarty-pants future lawyers.
Oh, and one gal said she liked my necklace.That wraps up my talks for October. Mid-November I’ll begin my high school circuit with a full day mental health conference at Auburn Drive high school in Cole Harbour. I’m really looking forward to that!
I’ve also been very excited recently because it was confirmed that I will be having an article published in Chatelaine early in the new year. For my non-Canadian readers, Chatelaine is a women’s lifestyles publication and is the number one magazine in Canada in paid circulation. Obviously, this is huge for me as a writer but also completely rocks for me as a mental health advocate.
I’ve been working on it over the past couple of weeks and just submitted the first draft to the editor yesterday. Many thanks to The Husband, The Sister and BDN for being my alpha readers.
Now to start on the kids’ Halloween costumes!
Fantastic, can’t wait to buy and read your article in Chatleiane. Thanks for being such a great mental health advocate. Love the necklace, it is phenomenal! Awesome felting! I suck at most handwork these days but if you are ever having a felting jewelry makeing night i’d be there with bells on!
Keep up the great work Stephanie
