Mental Health Week May 6 – 12, 2019
2019 marks the 68th annual CMHA Mental Health Week
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. One in five Canadians lives with mental health problems, mental illnesses or addiction. But the reality is five in five of us have mental health, just like we all have physical health. We can all benefit from celebrating, promoting and acknowledging the role that good mental health plays in living a full and meaningful life.
Mental health involves 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.
Let’s actively promote healthy and supportive places to work all year long! Check out the Spring 2019 for more ideas and resources to get you and your team started.
