Mental Health Week 2015

 

This week marks Mental Health Week from May 4 to 8 and we’d like to bring your attention to this important campaign organized by the Canadian Mental Health Association.

“Mental health is key to our well-being. We can’t be truly healthy without it. It involves how we feel, think, act, and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about realizing our potential, coping with the normal stresses of life, and making a contribution to our community.  Good mental health isn’t about avoiding problems or trying to achieve a ‘perfect’ life. It’s about living well and feeling capable despite challenges”   ~ CMHA

Some key recommendation by the CMHA to practice and stay healthy in your day to day life:

  • Build a healthy self-esteem
  • Build positive support networks
  • Get involved
  • Build resiliency
  • Recognize your emotions
  • Take care of your spiritual well-being
  • Asking for help

To read more about these tips in detail visit the Mental Health Fact Sheet.

If you ever find yourself in a crisis, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.

If you’re looking for a referral to a qualified mental health practitioner, you can contact your health professional or talk to one of our Case Managers at WTSS.

Comments will be sent directly to our social media team.
