Stop the Stigma

Today, Day 28 of my Gratitude Challenge, I am grateful that it is Bell Let's Talk Day.

Mental health is an important issue for me, both as someone who has struggled with anxiety for most of my life, as well as someone who, as a psychotherapist, who works in the field.

I am so thankful for this initiative which aims to open dialogue about mental health and to reduce the stigma from mental illness.  This year it is focusing on 3 particularly vulnerable populations who, in Canada, do not get sufficient support: (1) Military, (2) Youth, and (3) Seniors.
