Mental Health Week
Mental Health Week is an opportunity to have candid discussions about mental health and wellness and help put an end to the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
One in five Canadians will struggle with mental illness at some point in their lives. Too often, they hesitate to seek the help and support they need out of fear of discrimination or shame.
We are a community, committed to a healthy work and learning environment and we must work together to raise awareness about mental health.
Engage in honest and open conversations about mental health and how we can increase our collective wellbeing. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, learn more about available support options. Let’s rise to the challenge.
Now is the time to #GETLOUD for mental health!
