DCCN – Mental Health and Depression
Disabled Community Connection Network (DCCN) is a monthly communication and information group for people of all ages (16+) with any disability. This group is hosted by the North Shore Disability Resource Centre. This group is facilitated by and for people with disabilities. The next group is September 19th, 4:00PM – 6:00PM. LOCATION: 3158 Mountain Hwy, North Vancouver BC, the North Shore Disability Resource Centre Association’s offices. You can get there by bus, sea-bus and car.
The topic for the session will be on “Dealing with Mental Health and Depression as a Disabled Person”
Christa McDiarmid will be our speaker. MacDiarmid is Organizational Coach and Consultant, working with employees, teams and top teams with regard to interpersonal conflict and communication, insight from feedback, vulnerabilities and stressors, and working with personal potential. She was born with a genetic condition, Charcot Marie Tooth – a neuropathy that affects strength in lower limbs, feet and hands, though MacDiarmid did not find out until she was 43 that it had a name. When MacDiarmid turned 44, she had a mental breakdown due to a few traumas, including the results of a ‘transformative’ operation on her feet and toes. MacDiarmid will speak to the impact of disability on mental health and a general ability to like yourself as you are.

And the Winner of the 2019 NSDRC Poster Contest is…. John Fong
Congratulations John Fong! The theme of this year’s poster contest was “The Five Senses” – vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch. The theme is in honour of the NSDRC Campaign to create Canada’s first mobile multi-sensory environment: a Mobile Snoezelen® Room.
This was a wonderful showing of true artistry! All the entries captured the senses perfectly making it was hard to decide a winner! The judges appreciated that John’s piece captured a sense of sound / hearing. A difficult sense to display through a visual medium. – Brilliant artistry!
