About this Episode

As this episode is released on October 9th, 2023, we would like to wish our listeners in Canada a Happy Thanksgiving. In today’s episode, Caitlin Plant, Program Manager at Distress and Crisis Ontario, reads an excerpt from an article featured in our October eNews + Views newsletter, “The history of Thanksgiving — An Indigenous perspective”, written by Kaleeb Meeks for Pelham today. She also shares some options for practicing gratitude in general if you are not someone who celebrates Thanksgiving. If you need support for any reason, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your nearest distress centre or ONTX. You can find your closest Member centre at www.dcontario.org/locations and can access ONTX between the hours of 2PM to 2AM daily from any page of our website or by texting SUPPORT to 258258.

We regret to announce that the ONTX text and chat program will cease operations on November 30th, 2023. Text and chat services will remain available until that date, however, they will no longer be accessible starting December 1st, 2023.
