The Canadian Mental Health Associations Mental Health Week is May 6 – 12, 2019.
Mental health 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 have good mental health. It is about having a sense of purpose, strong relationships, feeling connected to our communities, knowing who we are, coping with stress and enjoying life. And it’s never too early or too late to get there. But it’s not just about what you do for yourself, by yourself—everyone needs healthy and supportive places to work, live and learn.– Canadian Mental Health Association
Mental health affects all of us in one way or another, whether it’s ourselves, friends and family or a client. We have put together a few resources to help you navigate mental health for yourself, a loved one or a client.
