National Mental Health Week
Monday May 3, 12:00am
until Sunday May 9
The past year has been incredibly challenging one for mental health and wellness, and many of us have struggled with uncomfortable emotions in response to a period of uncertainty, fear, and isolation. But just because our emotions are uncomfortable, that doesn’t mean we should go uncomfortably numb. When we put our feelings into words, the heavy, painful ones feel lighter. And according to brain science, we actually feel better.
May 3–9 is the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)’s Mental Health Week. Throughout that week, we encourage you to reach out to those around you and #GetReal about how you feel.
