Mental Health Week's

Talk Wednesday: Wednesday, May 9, 2018
You don’t need to be an expert to start talking about mental health. Sometimes the most helpful thing you can do is to let someone know that you are there for them and simply listen. 

• Talk, and listen too: being there will mean a lot.
• Take your lead from the person: As a first step, ask them how you can best help.
• Be open minded, and non-judgmental.
• Keep in touch: There are lots of small ways of showing support - Send a text or just ask someone how they are doing. 





One in five Canadians will experience mental illness at some point in their lifetime.

One of the biggest hurdles for anyone experiencing mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why many of those living with a mental illness do not seek help.


May 7th to the 13th, 2018 is Mental Health Awareness Week.

The theme this year from the Canadian Mental Health Association is Get Ready to #Get Loud.


The Mental Health Team in Sagamok Anishnawbek invite you to participate in activities throughout the week. Together we can break down barriers and make a difference.

We encourage you to get the conversation about mental health started. No one is alone in this fight. When "I" is replaced with "we" illness becomes WELLNESS. It's okay to not be okay. Our Mental Health and Addictions team are here to help. If you or someone you know needs support, please reach out.
