National Mental Health Week

Monday May 3, 12:00am
until Sunday May 9

Province Wide

Dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity is challenging for most of us under regular circumstances. Now, more than ever, we need to focus on our mental health. Whether you are social distancing alone or with your family, or going into work, its important to take some time for your mental health.

May 3–9 is Mental Health Week. Take some time to take care of yourself or reach out to support family members, friends, neighbours, and colleagues. Here are some fun and stress-reducing activities you can do while physical distancing:

  • have a virtual date with family and friends;
  • call or send a friendly message to let colleagues, loved ones, and neighbours know you are thinking of them;
  • go for a walk—people feel better when they get some physical activity in—even if it’s just a light one; and
  • share positive news and acts of kindness with your community—this helps to keep people smiling and knowing there is greater good in the world
