1 in 5 Canadians experience a mental health issue in any given year, but ALL Canadians have mental health. The more we learn about mental health and mental illnesses, the better equipped we are to maintain and improve mental health for ourselves and others.
Because we all have mental health.
When we are mentally healthy, we feel good about ourselves, and we enjoy our life and the people in it. We can be creative, learn, try new things, and take risks. We are better able to cope with difficult times in our personal and professional lives. We feel the sadness and anger that can come with the death of a loved one, a job loss, relationship problems or other difficult events, but in time, we are able to enjoy our lives again. Mental health is worth protecting, celebrating and promoting.
Whether you need some tips on keeping your own mental health in balance, or are looking for help for yourself or someone you care about, we can help.
