Mental Health Week May 3 to 9 - #GetReal about how you feel.

May 04, 2021

"Name it, don't numb it! #GetReal about how you feel" is this year's theme for #MentalHealthWeek. Organized by the CMHA National / ACSM National , Mental Health Week is from Monday, May 3 to Sunday, May 9.

These are times of extreme anxiety and isolation, so feeling worried and lonely just makes sense. Good mental health doesn’t mean feeling happy all the time.

This Mental Health Week, let’s name, express and deal with our emotions— even the uncomfortable ones. Because heavy feelings lighten when you put them into words.

Embrace all of your emotions—whether they feel good or challenging or difficult. It’s all part of being human.

This week—and every week after—don’t go uncomfortably numb. #GetReal about how you feel. And name it, don’t numb it.
