Mental Health Week

May 4-10, 2020

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. We can all have good mental health. It is about 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.

May 6-12, 2019 was Mental Health Week, and Canadians plugged in their mental health microphones and got loud about what mental health really is. Mental health: everyone has it! The next Mental Health Week is May 4-10, 2020.

Until then, stay loud.

and our new School Toolkit brought Mental Health Week
