The Canadian Mental Health Association is observing Mental Health Week from May 3rd to 9th and so are we here at McMath. The primary goal of the week is to promote mental health because "mental health is something we can promote and protect, not just something we can lose." As we find ourselves in a time of unprecedented stress and anxiety related to COVID-19, this is an important and relevant week for all of us. Get Ready to #GetReal about how you feel. The theme for this year's Mental Health Week is understanding our emotions. Everyone is encouraged to name, express, and deal with their emotions (even when they are uncomfortable). Recognizing, labeling, and accepting our feelings are all a part of protecting and promoting good mental health for everyone.
