May 2–8 2022 — Mental Health Week
The theme of this year's Mental Health Week was empathy. Empathy is a skill that anyone can learn. It is the capacity we share as human beings to step into each other's shoes. To understand where the other is coming from and what they are feeling. To listen hard and refuse to judge. It is also one way to reduce and resolve conflict.
Did you know that on any given week, more than 500,000 Canadians are unable to go to work due to mental health problems? - Mental Health Commission of Canada.
