Mental Health Week: May 7th – 13th, 2018
Hat Day for Mental Health: May 2nd, 2018
Wear your favorite hat to recognize Mental Health Day
Turn up the volume. It’s the 67th annual Canadian Mental Health Association Mental Health Week and Canadians are encouraged to #GETLOUD. The focus this year is on ending wait times for mental health care because too many Canadians are on standby for the care and services they need. Canadians are encouraged to write their MP’s, speak out on social media and donate time and money, all in the name of getting loud for mental health.
For more information about how to #GETLOUD visit the Canadian Mental Health Association website.
Alberta Health Services wants to remind you that resources are available to help your emotional and mental health.
During the week AHS is hoping to inspire you to learn more about how you can increase your positive emotional and mental health including ways to help you de-stress through online resources such as:
• Ways to Wellness, an online mental health challenge, provides seven different tips and ideas to encourage you to engage in physical activity, eat healthy foods, practice gratitude and have fun as some small steps to improve your mental health and help to reduce stress. Learn more about the simple steps you can take through the video: Ways to Wellness (YouTube).
• Help in Tough Times, has resources and services available to help you or someone you know who may be struggling. It has information, resources, tools and important contact information to help you, including self-help tips to ease some of the stress you may be feeling.
AHS wants Albertans to remember, if you are struggling, whether it’s day to day stresses, a loss of a loved one, home or job, or family crisis, you are not alone. There are supports in place to help you cope. Help can come in many forms and for some of us we may need more support than others.
There is also a private clinic in Hanna. You can contact Dr. Gainer at (403) 307-7232.
