Your Mental Health
Mental health means striking a balance in all aspects of your life: social, physical, spiritual, economic and mental. Reaching a balance is a learning process. At times, you may tip the balance too much in one direction and have to find your footing again. Your personal balance will be unique, and your challenge will be to stay mentally healthy by keeping that balance. Additional resources can be found at the CMHA National website.
Understanding Mental Illness
Mental illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do. Mental illnesses are still feared and misunderstood by many people, but the fear will disappear as people learn more about them. If you, or someone you know, has a mental illness, there is good news: all mental illnesses can be treated. You will also find helpful resources that provide more information to further your understanding of mental illness at the CMHA national website.

But a severe illness, an accident or an emotional crisis can overwhelm us, at least temporarily, and suddenly we need help. In this section, you will find the resources and tips on on getting help when you need it most. Additional resources on finding help can be found at the CMHA National website.
