Bright, yellow bench brings Calgarians together to talk about mental health

The Canadian Mental Health Association – Calgary Region is kicking off its Mental Health Week by unveiling the first Friendship Bench in the city and officials say it will provide a place for people to speak openly about mental health issues.

The bright, yellow bench is located at 1040 7th Avenue S.W. and was unveiled at a ceremony on Monday morning.

The bench will provide a safe space for Calgarians to connect with peers and it will serve as a permanent and visual reminder of the importance of openly discussing mental health concerns.
