Where to get help when you’re concerned with your mental health

posted in: Help, Media, Resources | 0

Only one in three Canadians who experience a mental health problem or illness seeks and receives services or treatment. The wrong time to prepare for a crisis is when you’re in it. We need to better equip people to identify a mental health problem, and teach them when to ask for help and how to find it.

 

The Globe and Mail provided a list of various ways to get help.  Their basic list is as follows, but for more detail, go to their article.

Awareness

Accountability

Action

EAP

Employment benefits
