Over 6.7 million people in Canada have a mental health condition. Mental health describes your emotional, behavioural and cognitive well-being and should always be as equally as important as your physical health.
The holidays can present a particularly difficult time for some who suffer from a mental health condition and this year those who have been affected by the isolation of the pandemic are in need of our attention. Now is the time to reach out to your loved ones, friends, neighbours and offer support. It could simply be a phone call, a video chat – just to see how they are doing and to share your concern for their well being.
