A staggering 150,000+ New Brunswickers could personally experience a mental illness in their lives. Mental illness is not discriminatory to gender, race, creed or social status. As a society, we all need to take care of our physical and mental health.
Mental health matters and effective treatments for mental illness are available through the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick (CMHA of NB) in Saint John, in particular:
• Depression: Help Can Make a Difference – a six-week education program for people who have been diagnosed with depression. The program is held Tuesday evenings beginning January 24th to February 28th, 2017.
• Building Assertiveness Skills – a six-week program designed to teach women how to stand up for their personal rights while respecting the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of others. The program is held Thursday evenings beginning January 26th to March 2nd, 2017.
Programs are sponsored by MindCare New Brunswick and are free to the public.
These are adult programs that help with mental health issues by achieving confidence and skills and are based on the principles of respect, equality, acceptance and self-determination.
