Rural Mental Health Project

Community Wellness "Reads"

The Edson Rural Mental Health Group was awarded a grant from the Rural Mental Health Project and CMHA this year to bring mental health and wellness literature to our community. 

Community Wellness Reads will be available year-round at the Edson and District Public Library for community members to access when needed. A rack in the library is now dedicated specifically to mental health and wellness resources! 

But that’s not it! We will also be hosting a series of “Living Library” conversations with our own community members as speakers! 

Our first sessions will begin November 7 and run for the following 6 Mondays. Sessions are 7 pm to 8pm at the Edson Library. Speakers will be invited to tell their story followed by a brief questions/ answer period. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a guest speaker, please contact community services at 


Check back here or on our social media for the latest on Living Library Dates!
