Get Loud!

Today is the official start of Mental Health Awareness week, #GETLOUD.

Mental Health Week is an annual national event that takes place during the first week in May to encourage people from all walks of life to learn, talk, reflect and engage with others on all issues relating to mental health (CMHA.ca). 

You’re encouraged to spread the word on social media using the hashtag #GETLOUD; share your story, and wear green to show your support! (Did you know that the colour green was once used to label the “insane.”) You can find events going on this week here.

To celebrate this week, I organized a workshop at my library on Self-Compassion: If you have ever felt you were inadequate or a failure, you are not alone. These feelings can lead to depression, anxiety and self-loathing. Join presenter from the MDABC as she explains how our thinking is faulty in these modern times, and how it leads to so much pain for all of us. Discover how we can liberate ourselves from some of our pain. 

I’m also active on social media, sharing resources and GETTING LOUD. Oh, and my nails are painted green for the week!

What are you doing this week?
