Radio Totally Normal Toronto, or RTNT for short, is a voice for community mental health; produced by the members and staff of Progress Place, a mental wellness clubhouse in downtown Toronto.
Episode 24 was hosted by RTNT’s Toby on November 13, 2019. This month we’re focusing on winter activities to stay happy and healthy.
It is estimated that 1 in 5 Canadians will suffer from mental illness in their life, and billions are estimated to be lost by employers annually as a result, it is always a pertinent topic.
Mark, a Progress Place regular will ask members a host of questions related to how they spend their free time during the cold winter months. We will learn how different Progress Place members are affected by the reduction of sunlight, how they get around and how they dress best for the weather. A host of community resources are discussed as well. Toby then shares he knowledge of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) a depressive condition caused by decreased exposure to sunlight that is usually experienced during winter in northern regions.
