About YEG Talks
YEG Talks, is non-profit organization aimed at ending the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Jeremy Cummins founded YEG Talks after experiencing his own struggle with mental health. In March of 2018, Jeremy was hospitalized for four weeks at the Alberta Hospital after his second attempted suicide. During his recovery, he received the utmost support, help, and tools from not only the Alberta Hospital, but the Momentum Walk-In Counselling Society as well. It was at this time that Jeremy decided he wanted to give back, and get Edmontonians talking about mental health, thus Yegtalks was born.
“Tackling mental health head on is my main focus. YEG Talks has endless opportunity in my eyes. We are hoping that by me sharing my story, it will help others come forward with their own struggles. It is a tough and hard path, but there are people out there that want to help you see past any struggles you have.”
Momentum is a non profit, walk-in mental health triage centre that provides support and guidance to people in need of counselling services. Momentum helps individuals who may not be able to pay or wait for the traditional health care system and is staffed by a team of volunteer, Registered Health Professionals.
