Mental Health

You are not alone. If you feel stress or struggle to deal with a mental illness, there is help. Talk to someone you trust—family member, friend, Elder, counselor, teacher, social worker, mental health worker, or nurse.

If you or someone you care about has thoughts of hurting yourself, call a crisis line or emergency number, or visit the health centre right away.
