CMHA MENTAL HEALTH WEEK LOOK BACK 5/15/2018 7:09:05 AM
Caring for your mental health is a year-round task, just like your physical health. This past week was Mental Health week for CMHA, but they stress that it doesn't matter what time of year it is, you should always be able to get the care you need. Christine Sansom is the Executive Director at the Canadian Mental Health Association site in Strathroy and says that above all else, people need to know that it's okay to not be okay, and that organizations like CMHA are always available to help anyone in need. Sansom adds that ,as we approach the election, its good to see politicians taking the issue of mental health seriously.
She says that it's not just CMHA who do good work, local partners like the WRRC and INsite walk-in clinics do good work of helping those in need, and that partnerships between all of these local groups help keep our community strong and healthy.
