From May 3 to 9, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is recognizing the 70th annual Mental Health Week, with a focus on understanding emotion. This year’s theme is #Get Real About How You Feel. Name it, Don’t Numb it.
One in five Canadians experiences mental illness or a mental health issue in any given year, and mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague. More recently, as many as 40 per cent of Canadians say their mental health has deteriorated since the onset of the pandemic.
Mental Health Week aims to shift societal beliefs and perceptions while promoting behaviours and attitudes that support good mental health and create a culture of understanding and acceptance.
