Mental Health Week – A time to come together and speak openly about mental health

Mental Health Week – A time to come together and speak openly about mental health

May 3, 2022

May 2-8, 2022 is Mental Health Week. We at Carrier Sekani Family Services fully believe that discussing mental health openly with one another provides a safe space for all to express themselves and builds a support system. You are never alone.

#GetReal

The theme for this year's Mental Health Week is to #GetReal about how to help and to practice empathy by stepping into someone else's shoes. To understand where they’re coming from and what they’re feeling. To listen hard and refuse to judge. It’s also one way to reduce and resolve conflict.

Disspelling Myths About Mental Health Treatment

What comes to mind when you think of mental health treatment?

Many think of one-on-one therapy and medication, but mental health treatment can come in many other forms like exercising, practicing mindfulness, and breathing.

Mental Health Booklets

Below are three informational booklets to guide you on your mental wellness journey.

Continuum of Care

Good mental health starts with you and taking care of ourselves is a life-long process. It is important to monitor our mental health in order to continue feeling well on an ongoing basis. Learn more in the Continuum of Care booklet.

 

Coping with Grief

Grief is a natural response when we face the loss of something or someone that is special to us. Grief is a process, and there is no set way or timeline to move through it. Learn more in the Coping with Grief booklet.

 

Self-Care After Trauma

A traumatic event or experience affects the whole person. Self-care is about taking steps to feel healthy and comfortable. Whether the traumatic event happened recently or years ago, self-care can help you cope with the short and long-term effects of the event. Learn more in the Self-Care After Trauma booklet
