Mental Health Week

Mental Health Week

Date: Monday May 02, 2022 - Sunday May 08, 2022
Location: Virtual

The 71st annual CMHA Mental Health Week runs May 2-8, 2022 and this year’s theme is empathy.

“Empathy is the ability to share someone else’s feelings or experiences by imagining what it would be like to be in their situation. It’s a simple concept, but it may be the very thing we humans need most. As human beings, we share an ability to imagine what life is like for someone else. To see the world as others see it. To look through someone else’s eyes. To climb inside and walk around in their skin. When someone is struggling, they don’t always need someone to swoop in and fix things for them. First, they need someone to understand where they’re coming from.”

CMHA has created a fantastic website filled with resources including information and articles and a toolkit with social media images, posters, zoom backgrounds, and signatures for your use.

Most importantly, bring empathy alive with the people in your life. Be there, listen completely, and see the world through their eyes. It’s how to really help.
