Mental health will be the focus of the second annual Manitoba Rural Women's Day, taking place Saturday in Minnedosa.

The event is hosted by the Manitoba Women's Institute. The theme this year is "A Healthy Mind is a Treasure to Find".

Debbie Melosky, chair of the planning committee, explained some of the activities that will be happening.

"There will be an hour-long chat, just of different questions related to services and mental health itself, and wellness, and also during breaks we have a display table area for people to visit."

The event will feature three guest speakers, in addition to a fireside chat.

A second event is planned for October 28th in Komarno, Manitoba.
