Thank you from the bottom of my heart for speaking at the Mysterious Barricades Event on Saturday September 15th, 2018. Your message and the absolute sincere delivery touched everyone at the deepest level. Your courage to allow us to witness your pain and by your example allow others to witness our own is hugely inspiring. I really feel that your presence made the event so very special and will help everyone to grow in their ability to speak about mental health and suicide prevention. You are a powerful speaker and I know that you have made and will continue to make a profound difference in people's lives.

A moving event, to help raise awareness around mental health issues. A Cross-Canada Concert for Suicide Awareness, Prevention and Hope . We believe music heals. And because we believe music heals, on Saturday September 15th, music will follow the sun across Canada, from dawn to dusk, from sea to sea, to bring hope to people at risk of suicide, to offer healing to those left behind, and to emphasize that we as a country and a community wish for the stigma of mental illness to become a thing of the past. Hundreds of professional musical artists will perform in thirteen cities, livestreamed in one day-long concert of hope and healing. All concerts will be free to attend; the livestream will be free to enjoy on any device.
Further information regarding this project, including the sequence of thirteen concerts, cities, venues, and performers, is available at www.mysteriousbarricades.org .
