HRH Colour Me Wor­thy Pre­sen­ta­tion

The McLeod River Post - - Education Matters -

On May 31, stu­dents at Holy Redeemer lis­tened to a pre­sen­ta­tion en­ti­tled “Colour Me Wor­thy”. Dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion, the stu­dents heard from Brooke Frizell (21) who shared her own per­sonal jour­ney with men­tal ill­ness, bul­ly­ing, home­less­ness and ad­dic­tion. Within this talk, she also spoke about the dan­gers of drugs and al­co­hol (and what it’s re­ally like) and talked about what it means to reach “rock bot­tom”. In ad­di­tion, she shared how to help some­one who is strug­gling by rais­ing aware­ness and pass­ing along in­for­ma­tion about Men­tal Health and Ad­dic­tion along with ways they can ac­cess help, and of­fered some self­care tips re­lat­ing it to her own per­sonal re­cov­ery. Here, Frizell, and her mother Jen, speak to the stu­dents about their per­sonal story that cer­tainly touched the lives of many of the HRH stu­dents.
