Getting loud means speaking up to stop the discrimination and the stigma that usually go hand in hand with mental illness. It means using your voice to raise awareness and build support. For someone at work. For someone at home. For yourself. We want everyone to #GETLOUD during this very important week.
Visit mentalhealthweek.ca to view tips on how you can GET LOUD. Wear green, talk, listen. Mental health issues affect us all. Whether or not you have a mental health issue, you very likely know – and love – someone who does. So lets GET LOUD for mental health and talk openly and honestly about mental health. GET LOUD to maintain positive mental health.
GET LOUD can also mean talking to someone you trust about your mental health. This could be anyone including a teacher, a guidance counsellor, a parent or a phoneline. You can also visit a nursing station, Teen Clinic or Klinic on Broadway for free drop-in counselling.
