Community Connection: Mental Health Series

The Brandon Niwa Legacy Fund | The Beej Project

Thanks to a generous donation from the Niwa family (referred to as the Beej Project), Medicine Hat College (MHC), is leading a partnership with local schools and law enforcement to support mental health through the development of a new video series.

Guided by a community advisory panel that includes Medicine Hat Public School Division No. 76, Prairie Rose School Division, Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education, and Medicine Hat Police Service, this grassroots initiative invites local professionals to share their expertise on a variety of topics, equipping people with the resources needed to build strength and resiliency in themselves and those around them.
