Mental Health Awareness Annual Event
On July 12, Reach Out Together will be hosting its third annual event in downtown, Toronto. Initiated by Aanchal Vashistha, the event will be held in honour of her late twin brother, UofT alumnus, Financial Services Manager at BMO, Tushar Vashistha, who passed away due to an undetected mental illness.
With a goal to help young professionals unwind and network at the same time, the event will feature distinguished speakers to help the crowd navigate through the topic of mental health; along with a dance performance followed by interactive games with snacks and beverages.
We will have TWO special guest speakers who will share their journey to recovery along with an industry expert. By reaching out, you are being the change we need. You will be contributing to breaking the stigma, that prevents people from seeking the right help. You will be contributing to creating a space where there is no judgment of self or others.
