Vancouver Coastal Health is part of a province-wide Addiction Knowledge Exchange initiative. One of the components of the Addiction Knowledge Exchange will be focused on reducing stigma and subsequently improving access to care of individuals and families whose lives are challenged by mental health and addiction issues.

As part of the anti-stigma initiative, VCH is sponsoring one night of Headlines Theatre’s Theatre for Living production of “Us  and Them (the inquiry).”

The theatre experience examines why society is often compelled to create a “them” in so many circumstances, a topic that is particularly relevant to us all.

We would like to invite you to attend the VCH-sponsored production of “Us  and Them (the inquiry).” on Sunday, November 28th, 2010 and take part in an evening of participatory theatrical inquiry that promises to be unique and memorable. Admission is by donation.

When:             November 28th, 2010 at 7:30pm
Where:            St. James Community Square
3214 West 10th Ave. Vancouver

The Sound Therapy Radio team is proud to announce they are winners of two CJSF Awards.

Best Remote Broadcast: ‘The Artist Lounge’

Volunteer Programmer of the Year: J Peachy, Creator of Sound Therapy Radio.

Our first year has definitely been an exciting one and an incredible learning experience.  The culture at CJSF 90.1 FM has really allowed us to push the boundaries of traditional community radio and explore different ways to spread the message.  This has given us the opportunity to bring people together who have different skills but a common interest in advocating for the arts and mental wellness.

The Artist Lounge remote broadcasts really can’t  happen without the coordination between many people who are busy with their own projects.  Without the support and commitment by Ryan Fletcher host of ‘Melodies in Mind’ the other half of ‘Tuesday Night Live’, we would have not been able to have as much fun and success that we have had to date. Undoubtedly, we expect that to continue.

Although the Volunteer of the Year is a personal award, it doesn’t come without people believing in your vision and trusting that I could follow through.  Its definitely flattering and inspires me to continue and evolve the programming. There are many present and past contributors and guests who must share in the accolades in what at one time was merely a personal art project for me.

I think its an exciting time for community based media and am privileged to be associated with such a progressive station.
