Mental Health Matters

Did you know:

  • Mental health isn't the absence of illness or disorders.

  • The World Health Organization defines it as, “state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community”. -

  • It is important to be aware of signs and symptoms related to poor mental health so you can access supports or help others to do so.

  • Depression is the most common illness effecting more females then males.

  • Depression isn't a bad day or sadness - these are normal human experiences.

  • Depression symptoms (present daily and persist for 2 or more weeks) include sadness, irritability, feelings of emptiness and hopelessness, loss of pleasure or interest in activities.
