I’m fine...

 

Two words that can mean so much. A cry for help sometimes.

 

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 people in Canada and roughly 8% of adults will experience depression at some point in their lives. Mental illness does not discriminate and affects people of all ages, race, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds like,income, employment, and education to name a few. Covid-19 has created a significant impact on many people’s mental health.

 

Did you know that 22% of Canadians reported that they had been diagnosed with depression and an additional 20% said they received an anxiety disorder diagnosis. This means that supports that have been put in place to help people cope with their mental health are being used at a much higher capacity versus pre-Covid, causing challenges for people needing to gain access to resources. As we all are experiencing major life changes caused by the pandemic it is important to take the time to check in on your loved ones. It’s easy to get caught up and forget to REALLY check in on our loved ones because we are all experiencing an uncomfortable state of living. It’s easy to cover up how we feel on the inside with the prettiest makeup and lashes but no amount of cosmetics can cover up how we REALLY feel. Reach out to your local supports for help. Don’t forget it helps to speak to someone instead of keeping everything bottled up inside, after all you’re only human and you have limits.
