It’s doesn’t matter what age you are when it comes to your mental health and emotional state of mind.
For many reasons, adults experience anxiety, stress and challenges that are unforeseen. We question the very thoughts we have, we don’t validate ourselves for feeling a certain way. Worse, many of us don’t talk about it.
Now is the time to speak up about how you’re feeling. Now is the time to support a friend. If you are going through a tough time, you’re not alone. We are with you, and we support you.
We did our best to consolidate a list of mental health resources by Canadian Province. These links are known government help lines and support information resources.
If you need immediate help, or know someone that does, please call 911.
