Mental health is about more than mental illness
It’s more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows. Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on.
The Canadian Mental Health Association’s annual Mental Health Week is May 7-13, 2018
- Each May, Canadians in communities, schools, workplaces and the House of Commons
rally around CMHA Mental Health Week.
- 2018 marks the 67th annual CMHA Mental Health Week.
- Mental Health Week is led by the Canadian Mental Health Association, which is also
celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
Mental health is about more than mental illness
- One in five Canadians live with mental health problems, mental illnesses or addiction.
But the reality is, five in five of us have mental health, just like we all have physical
- We can all benefit from celebrating, promoting and acknowledging the role that good
mental health plays in living a full and meaningful life.
Let’s #GetLoud about what mental health really is
- Mental health is about more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about
who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows.
- Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on.

Next to Normal
Next to Normal, winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness.
Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son
are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical family. And yet, the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years.
Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart. This deeply moving piece of theatre is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.

Jade Dulle uses her childhood love of cycling to raise money and awareness for mental health initiatives.
Jade Dulle has always loved cycling. This year, she went on a life-changing ride to remember. Recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, Jade realized how difficult it was to get treatment as she went through long wait lists and experienced a lack of resources. Determined to make a difference, Jade created Jade’s Ride For Mental Health to raise money and awareness for mental health initiatives. This spring, Jade, her partner Courtney, and her father Calvin successfully made the journey from Willow Creek, Saskatchewan to Creighton, Saskatchewan—a 1,300-km ride. Despite cold and rainy weather, wind gusts of 90km/h and fatigue, Jade conquered the distance and raised over $25,000 for the Saskatoon Canadian Mental Health Association. Recently accepted to pre-social work classes at the University of Regina, Jade is now looking to her next opportunity to support others living with mental health issues.
