Let's #GETLOUD About Mental Health

Statement on Mental Health Week

Our mental health is an important part of our overall health and well-being.

From first responders and veterans dealing with PTSD to better access to mental health services, it's clear the Trudeau government can do so much more.

But there have been some wins on PTSD lately, on national guidelines for provinces and territories to get workers help, because mental injuries are just as important as physical ones.

As we kick off #MentalHealthWeek, I send my deepest thanks to the incredible teams at CMHA - Mid Island Branch, the Vancouver Island Crisis Society and all frontline mental health workers for the important work you do today and every day.

Let's #GETLOUD about mental health and support each other!
