Thinking about Mental Health after Bell Let’s Talk Day 2015

Submitted by Monica Nunes of the CAMH Resource Centre
 
Most of us are becoming more and more familiar with the idea of mental illness as reflecting some kind of mental health issue. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) mental health is a positive concept that is distinct from mental illness. PHAC defines mental health as "the capacity of each and all of us to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and deal with the challenges we face". Mental health is a multifaceted topic and making the distinction between mental health and mental illness is just one of the many potential discussions to have when it comes to our mental well-being. Yesterday was Bell Let's Talk Day; let's continue the conversation about mental health!
 
Not sure where to start or what to say about mental health? No need to worry, the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre has you covered! Check out our website for resources on mental health and mental health promotion. Our What is Mental Health postcard shares several different ways to talk about mental health.
