Mental Health Presentation in Caroline

Noah Boakye Yiadom spoke about cannabis use

Caroline Neighborhood Place is hosting a series of presentations on mental health for interested community members at this time.
On Tuesday, April 23, Noah Boakye Yiadom from Alberta Health Services made the first presentation with cannabis in focus at the HUB in Caroline to a small but keenly interested audience.

He emphasized the connection between mental health and substance abuse and suggested that the latter is just the "tip of the iceberg".
Legalization of cannabis for recreational use has been a positive step to facilitate intervention, especially where children are concerned.
From a public health perspective it is desirable to have a well regulated market, rather than an illegal one, or one solely based on corporate profits.

Future proposed presentations in Caroline will focus on Mental Health and Mental Illness, Mood Related Problems, Stress Management and others, based on demand.
