Mental health is not only the avoidance of serious mental illness. Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including the stress of balancing work with your health and relationships.
Although 1 in 5 Canadians will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime, 5 in 5 Canadians have mental health. It is important to stay active in ensuring your mental health is top of mind and you are working to improve your mental health every day.
