Let’s talk EVERY DAY about mental health.
It’s great companies are bringing awareness to mental health. But in order to create real change, we need both awareness AND action!
Mental health is an issue EVERY DAY for so many people. Day in and day out, we witness the toll that struggles with mental health has had on our clients. On us. On our families and friends. The pandemic only amplifies these concerns, making us feel more isolated and disconnected than ever before.
So what can we do about it - today and EVERY day?
• Share how you’re feeling when it is safe to do so. If you can’t think of a support person you would trust - reach out to mental health helplines. We have numerous ones in our story highlights!
• Support others. Check in and ask how they’re doing. If you know they are going through a tough time, show up! Offer to drop off groceries, have a video chat, or go for a walk.
• Support organizations that support mental health. This includes both mental-health specific programs (like CAMH), and programs that support affordable housing, education, and access to food.
•Educate yourself on mental health. The more we know, the less we assume - and this can significantly reduce stigma!
•Take care of you. Listen to your body, and give mental health the same care you’d give to your physical health. Make sure you’re taking care of your needs for food, sleep, play, and rest. Stay active, whatever that looks like for you! Walking, dancing, yoga, and playing outside are just a few ways you can look after you
•Know that you are not alone! You are loved, you are important, and you are doing an amazing job navigating an incredibly challenging year.
