Let’s Talk Mental Health

12 Feb

We don’t need #BellLetsTalk to give permission to talk about mental health. But today, lets start the convo, it’s a good a time as any.

This is CAMH, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health: http://www.camh.ca/en/hospital/Pages/home.aspx. They’re supporting Bell’s marketing campaign, piggybacking on their dollars to help destigmatize and open discussion on mental health, both in the public sphere and for some individuals, with their community.

CAMH is also promoting “The New Normal” – a look at how people who aren’t “neurotypical” are now being counted as normal, which is a very good thing.

For the eggheads, this is TVO’s “Mental Health Matters” round up. They cover many topics in many videos, and if you’re still learning about mental health or want to know pretty much where we are as a society regarding mental health, this is a digestible place to start.

If you’re ready to talk to a professional about your mental health, here is the CAMH contact page. For anyone not in Toronto, here is a crisis directory.

“Can we talk?”

“Are you okay?”

“I love you.”

Lets support each other by making it clear that it is okay to talk mental health in our communities.
