Community 6 May 2021
The pandemic affects us all! We are going through this time with a range of emotions that are affecting our mental health! Once again, this year, the Haut-Saint-Laurent Social Distress Committee is participating in the outreach of the Canadian Mental Health Association's (CMHA) Mental Health Week, which will take place from May 3 to 9.
Its approach consists of distributing awareness-raising tools (posters, leaflets, postcards) in pharmacies, grocery stores and schools. This action invites people, of all ages, to talk for real about what they feel! In this sense, both school staff and students will be invited to write their feelings on postcards and mail them or keep them.
In this difficult time, the Haut-Saint-Laurent Social Distress Committee also reminds you that local resources are there for you!
Since 1951, CMHA has held Mental Health Week the whole first full week of each May. The main goal of Mental Health Week is to promote mental health, because, it is not just something that can be lost: it can also be promoted and protected.
This local initiative was made possible thanks to the financial support from Huntingdon’s County deputy.
