Come to Meridian Place to discover mental health and wellness resources in your community with active living demos, a pop-up medication drop-off site with free harm reduction kits, and interactive activities including giveaways.
The Barrie Wellness Fair will showcase and bring together a wide variety of available resources in our community.
