May 3 – 9th, 2021 marks mental health week. The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has a catchy theme this year:
#GetReal about how you feel. Name it, don’t numb it. “This CMHA Mental Health Week, we focus on how naming, expressing, and dealing with our emotions — the ones we like and the ones we don’t — is important for our mental health.”
They offer downloadable toolkits and lots of information and articles about naming your feelings and understanding your emotions. You can also subscribe to get updates. This is a great resource and with almost a month before the event, we can spend some time exploring and learning about emotions.
