Welcome to Peace of Mind

Welcome to Peace of Mind


TAREQ: WE ALL HAVE MENTAL HEALTH. IT’S A KEY ISSUE THAT IS IMPACTING CANADIANS EVERYWHERE. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED TO SOMEONE WHO IS SUFFERING OR WORKING ON THEIR MENTAL HEALTH. WE BELIEVE THAT PEACE IS THE NOBLEST THING ON EARTH, THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR. SINCE STARTING PEACE BY CHOCOLATE, WE HAVE BEEN ALWAYS TRYING TO ENGAGE WITH OUR COMMUNITY AND WORK ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER. THAT’S WHY WE CONNECTED WITH THE CANADIAN MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION ON THIS INITIATIVE, PEACE OF MIND, BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT PEACE OF MIND IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE IS STRIVING FOR. FRANK:ONE OF THE KEY CONSISTENT THINGS WE’RE HEARING IS THAT THERE IS A GAP. THERE’S PLACES IN WHICH PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING, AND THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACH OUT FOR HELP. WE HOPE THAT THROUGH THIS PARTNERSHIP, WE CAN LINK PEOPLE TOGETHER, AND SORT OF SPEED UP THE ABILITY FOR PEOPLE TO GET GROUNDED AND SUPPORTED, SO THAT THEIR DAILY LIVES CAN THRIVE AND JUST FEEL MORE AT PEACE. TO THRIVE, WE ALL NEED A SENSE OF SELF. WHO WE ARE, HOW WE CONNECT WITH OTHERS, WHERE WE FIND A SENSE OF BELONGING AND CONTRIBUTION, AND ULTIMATELY, WE HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO BE RESILIENT AND TO ALLOW OURSELVES TO ENGAGE IN THE DAILY INTERACTIONS THAT BRING US MEANING. TAREQ: WE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT THE ONE IN FIVE OF US THAT HAS MENTAL ILLNESS, AND THE REST OF US, BUT THERE IS NO REST OF US. THERE IS JUST US. FRANK: AS A WAY OF GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITIES, WE’VE CO-DESIGNED A VERY SPECIAL CHOCOLATE BAR, CALLED THE PEACE OF MIND BAR. TAREQ: THE PEACE OF MIND BAR IS A REMINDER TO CONNECT WITH HOW YOU FEEL. TAKE A DEEP BREATH, FIND PEACE IN YOUR DAY, AND SHARE KINDNESS WITH OTHERS. FRANK: OPENING UP THAT BRIDGE, THAT CONNECTIVITY, THAT WILL ALLOW PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT THIS AND GET THE SUPPORT AND THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO LIVE WITH MORE PEACE IN THEIR LIVES WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO EVERYONE. TAREQ: IT’S TIME TO STOP LONELINESS, TO STOP PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, AND TO STOP THE ISOLATION. PEOPLE WANT TO BE SEEN AS STRONG, BUT STRENGTH IS IN OUR VULNERABILITY AND STRENGTH IS IN OUR CONNECTION. WE ALL HAVE MENTAL HEALTH. STOP THINKING IT’S THE OTHER PERSON. IT’S ME, IT’S YOU – IT’S EVERYONE. THERE IS A GREAT CHANCE FOR US TO BUILD UPON THIS MOVEMENT AND CREATE A CHANGE. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.
