Dennis Shinski: Suicide Prevention Resource Centre
Suicide Prevention Resource Centre's program "Tough Enough to Talk About It" (formerly known as the Men at Risk program) would like to nominate Dennis Shinski.
After almost one year of volunteering for this program, Dennis has provided at least 60 hours of valuable service by publicly sharing his powerful story, offering support, promoting mental health and wellness, and providing feedback on new program ideas and direction. He fearlessly takes on each request, continually improving and developing his role as a program facilitator. We are thrilled to have him as a part of our team!
