Every July Canadians from all backgrounds come together to celebrate Canada’s birthday. The newest episode of our Recovery Is Possible: A Mental Health Podcast, zeros in on the cultural differences connecting us all. Join us as we talk to Anila Umar Lee Yuen, the President and CEO of The Center for Newcomers in Calgary and Yohanka MacPhie, a Recovery College student and mental health advocate, and discuss some of the obstacles newcomers experience when making Canada their new home. Here’s to mental wellness for all!
