The Vernon branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association is looking for people who support mental health to appear in a video showcasing their programs.
Executive director Julia Payson says the video shoot will be this Friday at 3 pm at their office at 3100 28th Avenue.
“The call is open to anyone in the North Okanagan interested in appearing in a group shot of a variety of community members smiling and interacting to show support for mental health in our communities.”
Payson says the group scene is part of a video that will showcase some of the many programs and services offered by CMHA.
“The project is part of the Downtown Vernon Association Video Co-op program. Neil Scott from Strategic Video for Business Inc. has partnered with DVA and its members to create a series of videos showcasing downtown Vernon businesses and associations,” adds Payson.
Payson says no one will be paid for participating, but refreshments will be provided after the shoot, and street parking is available.
Participants should arrive 15 minutes early and the shoot is expected to take about 30 minutes.
CMHA Vernon serves a diverse population across the mental health continuum in the North Okanagan, from youth aged 7 to seniors 75+, providing affordable and supportive housing, social enterprise employment programs, peer support and mental wellness education.
