CFN Recognizes Mental Health Week May 1 - 7

This May 1st through the 7th turn up the volume for the 66th Annual CMHA Mental Health Week and get loud for mental health. This year during CMHA Mental Health Week, Canadians are speaking up: we’ve been in line for mental health care for way too long.  To be truly mentally well, Canadians also need psychotherapy, counselling and community-based mental health services and programs; we need acknowledgement and respect; and we need adequate housing. This CMHA Mental Health Week, May 1-7, Canadians are writing their MPs, speaking out on social media, and donating our time and money, all in the name of getting loud for mental health.

In the end, we all want to be healthy and happy. No one can be truly healthy without positive mental health. It involves how we feel, think, act and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about coping with the normal stresses of life and making a contribution to our community. Ask for help or seek advice from a professional – give your mental health the attention it needs and deserves.

Positive mental health isn’t about avoiding problems or trying to achieve a “perfect” life. It’s about living well and having the tools to cope with difficult situations even during life’s challenges. Each person’s path to mental well-being is unique. We all have our own goals, our own challenges, our own talents and our own supports. But positive mental health is within everyone’s reach.
