October 10 is World Mental Health Day

Mental health is a state of well-being, and we all have it.  Just like we each have a state of physical health, we also each have our mental health to look after.  It’s not just about surviving, it’s about thriving.  It’s enjoying life, having a sense of purpose, and being able to manage life’s highs and lows.

 

One in five people in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness in any given year.  But five in five of us have mental health.

 

We all have mental health just like we all have physical health. And just as we monitor our bodies for potential problems or pain, we should keep tabs on our mental health and try to better recognize when it needs some attention.

 

If you or someone you know struggles with their mental health, encourage them to reach out to someone and remember to be supportive and empathetic to what they are going thru.
