On May 10th, The Warriors Against the Parasites of the Mind are staying up once again to fight the stigma around mental health.
Mental illnesses are all around us. As a result of this, we must not be afraid to talk about it and we should not make it harder for others to talk about it as well. By ending the stigma, we will help prevent so many people from being in an unhappy state of mind. CAMH is an institution that helps people break away from the darkest parts of their mind. By fundraising, you are helping CAMH research more about how to prevent and even cure mental illnesses in others. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health and we should not shy away from discussing the hardships that it brings. Help end the stigma.
If you, or someone you know, are dealing with mental hardships, here are some ways to prevent it:
- Do things you love/enjoy (Paint/Colour/Draw)
- Listen to Music
- Go for a walk/ enjoy nature
- Meditate/ Pray
- Surround yourself with friends and/or family
