Mental Health Week's

Laugh Thursday: May 10, 2018
On Thursday we encourage you to watch a comedy or spend time laughing with friends. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association laughter has been shown to boost the immune system, alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote a sense of hopefulness. 

 

 

SAGAMOK Observes MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK

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.
