BREAKING SILENCE WITH CREATIVE WRITINGS

A presentation by Raymond Tremblay

SUDBURY – Mr. Raymond D. Tremblay, will stop in Sudbury, next Thursday, November 18th, so that we may benefit from a presentation of his personal struggles with bipolar disorder and get some insight as to how he managed to cope with this illness. Mr. Tremblay will expand on the healing process he strives to maintain on a daily basis.

“I am both humbled and honoured to have been invited by the University of Sudbury’s Department of Native Studies to present on the importance of BREAKING MY SILENCE regarding my struggles with my mental illness and to highlight how support received from my family, friends and health professionals, and a re-awakening of my spirituality and reconnecting with my Aboriginal roots nurtured my healing process” says Mr. Tremblay. Poet and novelist, Mr. Tremblay, will present some of his works while at the same time invite a frank discussion about this particular illness.

You are invited to attend this presentation which will be held November 18th as of 7:00 p.m. at the Canisius Hall of the University of Sudbury. Refreshments will be served and copies of Mr. Tremblay’s book will be available for purchase.
