When it comes to mental health, now more than ever, every action counts. There are important reasons to start talking about mental illness. Hard to see, mental illness is one of the most widespread health issues in the country, with consequences for everyone. While one in five Canadians will experience a mental illness at some point in their life, most will be cautious about talking to a co-worker, friend or family member about the issue, let alone seek treatment. And while you may not experience mental illness first-hand, it is likely that you know someone who has or will have a mental illness. Today and everyday we must keep the conversations going to help our people in the communities we work and live.
