#20PercentChallenge

Mental Health Moment: 

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

In any given year, roughly 1 and 5 people in Canada will encounter a mental wellness or illness challenge.

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.

Discuss.
