The COVID-19 pandemic has brought mental health to the forefront of our minds. Whether you have struggled with your mental health prior to the pandemic or not, this collective experience of physical distancing, alternative work strategies, unemployment, and restrictions on how we can gather and go about our daily lives has impacted all of us. 

To shine a light on the ways in which Edmontonians have found meaning and connection in their lives, “Hello, How Are You?” in partnership with Edmonton Public Library is profiling hopeful messages of finding connection during these unprecedented times.

Over the next few months, stories, poems, music, speakers and ideas, will be shared through a series of videos, each with a different focus but a shared outcome—a sense of belonging and connection, a key element for positive mental health. 

Come along with us as we find and showcase Random Acts of Connection in Edmonton! Videos will be posted on this page and shared on social media using #RandomActsOfConnection and #SayHelloYEG.
