Roméo Dallaire in Bagotville for a lecture
Thanks to the longstanding collaboration between CFB Bagotville and the Suicide Prevention Centre of Saguenay- Lac- Saint- Jean ( SPC02), the base will have the privilege of receiving the Honourable Lieutenant General ( ret.) Roméo Dallaire as part of a conference on November 24th.
Mr. Dallaire has agreed to give a presentation to mem- bers of CFB Bagotville Thursday, November 24th, from 9am to 10am in the base auditorium as part of the CAF addictions awareness campaign. "General Dallaire is a living example of resilience. It is public knowledge that he was able to ask for help when he experienced mental health problems. He is the ideal spokesperson during addic- tions awareness week. It shows us that we can have a fulfilling and satisfying life when we agree to get help," adds Susie Bernier of the Health Promotion team. As space is limited in the base auditorium, those interested in attending the conference should contact the Health Promotion Office at extension 7102 in order to register.
