Mental health is crucial to our well-being and success at school, at home and in the workplace. Mental health issues don’t discriminate. They can happen to anyone, at any time, and for a wide variety of reasons.
Studies show that at least one in five of us will experience a mental health issue in our lifetime. According to the Canadian Medical Association, two in three will suffer in silence, fearing judgment and rejection. But the truth is that all of us – five in five – are impacted.
Join members of the Mental Health and Wellness Week Committee and help end the stigma that still exists. Get involved in workshops and activities and learn more about Georgian’s support services Nov. 17 to 21.
Together, we can create a safe and welcoming environment – one where we can take off the mask of “everything is ok” and have an honest conversation about mental health issues on campus.
