Saskatchewan-based entrepreneur and consultant Brett Francis has been named guest speaker for the Canadian Mental Health Association’s 11th Annual Mayor’s Luncheon May 5 at Living Sky Casino Sky Centre.


Diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome and severe ADHD at age six and later diagnosed with OCD and panic disorder, Francis brings a unique perspectiveto overcoming obstacles and succeeding in life and business.
Her philosophy of “Overcoming the Odds” has not only defined and shaped her life, but has also helped many others. The philosophy involves three simple approaches in overcoming disabilities, anxiety, stress and more.
The luncheon takes place during Mental Health Week, May 3-9. 
A non-government and non-profit organization, the CMHA provides key services for people suffering from emotional and psychiatric disorders.
The Branch’s “Drop-In Centre” is crucial in assisting those with mental illness make the transition back into the community.
The Swift Current Branch of the CMHA operates numerous educational, recreational, vocational and social programs. Its meal program served just fewer than 8,000 helpings last year for clients afflicted with mental illness.
The organization relies heavily on staff and volunteers dedicated to helping mentally ill clients become productive individuals in the community. For more information, visit swiftcurrent.cmha.ca.
