#GetReal about how we really feel!
Clearview Public Schools CARS Mental Health Capacity Building Team invites you to participate in their virtual events during Mental Health Week.
This year, the Canadian Mental Health Association’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘social connection’ and its importance for mental health. The campaign this year calls for us to #GetReal about how we really feel.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, loneliness and social isolation were already of major concern in our society. Social connection is important in a time of social distancing Phone calls, video calls and other digital technologies offer excellent opportunities for connecting face-to-face, even when we can’t be in the same room. The pandemic can bring us together in unexpected ways. Canada has seen members of the community helping one another during these difficult times.
“While May 4 to 10 is Mental Health Awareness Week, we encourage everyone to take care of their mental health 365 days a year. During this pandemic, we recognize that our emotional and physical health may be at the forefront of our thoughts. We encourage adults and children to pay attention to your needs and feelings, and engage in healthy activities that you enjoy and find relaxing. As spring is upon us, we hope you are able to enjoy some excellent and free sources of self care - fresh air and physical activity as we #GetReal for Mental Health Week 2020.”
