Mental Health Moment:
For too long, our safety moments have avoided the topic of mental health and mental wellness.

By age forty, 50% of the population will have had a mental health problem or illness. [ Fast Facts about Mental Illness – CMHA National]
Yet, we do no talk about it. This must change.
We need to reject the stigma and normalize the conversation. For this reason, we ask each of you to consider taking the #20percentchallenge.
Commit to 20 percent of safety moments per week on topics related to mental health and wellness.
