Jim Demeray is the founder of Understand Us, a Regina-based volunteer initiative that combats the stigma of mental health. On mental health month, Jim sits down with Dale Richardson to discuss his story, including his early life in Ontario; moving to Saskatchewan; his father’s struggle with depression; Jim’s own mental health story; and his mental health initiative Understand Us.
Tickets for the Understand Us fundraising dinner on May 8th in Regina can be purchased online here. Donations to Understand Us can also be made by visiting their website here.
Thanks to Jim for the ongoing work he does to improve the conversation around mental health in our communities.
