To me, Mental Health Awareness shouldn’t be something we are afraid to talk about. According to CAMH, 1 in 5 Canadians experiences a mental illness or addiction. I’ve witnessed people around me suffer in silence because of the stigma around the topic of mental health, and I want to be a part of the change. I’m really glad I discovered Okay Movement, because it creates a safe space to start the difficult conversation, creating a non-judgemental environment that’s easily accessible to anyone.
