Are you ready for Mental Health Week, May 6-12?
It’s the 68th year of this Canadian tradition, and we’ve got what you need to get loud – and clear. Because we’re not just getting loud, we’re getting loud about what mental health really is.
So, what is mental health really? Simply put, it is a state of well-being, and we all have it. We might have a mental illness, and we might not. Either way, we can all feel well. We can all feel good about ourselves, whatever life’s ups and downs.
With the right supports in place, we can be well, stay well and get out in front of illness. They call it “mental health promotion” and it happens in schools, at work, at home and in communities. It’s never too late, or too early, to start promoting mental health.
This year, we’re helping teachers start early! Stay tuned for our Mental Health Week School Toolkit.
This Mental Health Week, we will also be unveiling a new policy paper to help Canada get out in front of mental illness the other 51 weeks of the year.
Be ready to #GetLoud with us, starting May 6.
Locally, the Mental Health Week Planning Committee has been working hard all year to plan many exciting events to mark the week. Download Calendar of Events here 2019 Mental Health Week Calendar of Events
