Mental Health Awareness Month
May is International Mental Health Awareness Month. 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from a mental health condition, but 5 in 5 are affected by mental health. This month, we come together to give voices to those who aren’t able to speak up and start conversations to break down the barriers of mental health.

CMHA: Mental Health week – May 7 to 13, 2018: It’s more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows. Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on.
