AH33 - CHECKINCHALLENGE
Zueike partnered with Andrew Harris of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to bring awareness to mental health. The holidays can cause extra strain to our mental health - particularly with so many of us being physically isolated this year. So don’t forget to take part in the #CheckInChallenge and use the resources listed if the people you are checking on are struggling with their mental health.
