There is still time to enter the #GetLoud contest! Let's get social and talk about what mental health really is during the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) mental health week from May 7 - 13.

The CMHA has been bringing awareness and encouraging the conversation about mental illness and wellness for over 65 years. According to the CMHA, “mental health is about more than mental illness. It’s more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your live and managing life’s highs and lows. Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience."

PHC, let’s #GetLoud about mental health! Let’s show our support for having the conversation about mental health and wellness and let’s talk about it to help reduce stigma. Mental health is only one component of health and wellness and is as important as physical health.

Gather your colleagues and join the conversation.

#GetLoud Campaign Instructions:

  • Print the image below (one for each person).
  • Each person completes the sentence, “I make the world…”.
