Today is a great way to start the conversation on mental health and what we can do to reduce the stigma around mental illness. One aspect that often is missed is the hope many people find as part of the recovery process from mental illness.
The Canadian Mental Health Commission has an excellent video on the power of recovery – and what more can be done to promote recovery within the mental health system.
The road to recovery starts with awareness and understanding. On Bell Let’s Talk Day, we collectively increase our awareness of what it’s like to experience good mental health. Let us also realize the hope there is for recovery and for living beyond a mental illness.
