Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick.

Stress can be a sudden occurrence, or a daily part of our increasingly busy lives—so how do we manage it? What about more serious illnesses like depression or eating disorders—what are the signs, and how do we address them?

Join Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, Amanda Swoboda, Wendy Creelman and Mary Lamoureux will sit on a panel to discuss ways to help achieve positive mental health.

The forum takes place Saturday, 1 to 3 p.m., at the Engineering and Management Building lecture theatre on the UBC Okanagan campus. Admission is free.

This event is the latest in a series of community health forums organized by  Letnick. Previous topics have included  cardiovascular health, joint health, cancer prevention, sexual health and nutrition.

The next forum planned for April will focus on pet health, offering prevention tips to keep our companions health and happy in all stages of life. It will be held Saturday, April 11, 1 to 3 p.m., at the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country.
