Editor, the Times:
We are writing to thank you for promoting the Living Room Support Group that met at Highland Community Church (people with depression, anxiety, bipolar) over the past four years, by including our program in your "Community Events" listings, and display advertising.
Many people were directed to this program through the information in your paper.
Along with the benefits received by those who participated directly, we believe the program has served to raise awareness of mental illness, reduce the stigma, and provide a safe place for participants to find support and encouragement.
While the program ended for this season June 8, we regret to inform your readers that the program has been terminated, and will not resume in September as usual. We encourage people who need support to explore the Mood Disorder Association Support Group that meets at Abbotsford Community Services, Montrose Ave, Abbotsford.
