than ever to look after our own mental health, and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is urging all of us to not just get loud, but #GetReal about it.

 

May 4th to 10th is National Mental Health Week and Waypoint is acknowledging this year’s campaign with a virtual tribute in support of all essential workers, from hospital employees and emergency services to grocery store workers and beyond.

 

“Reports are showing that 50% of Canadians are experiencing a decline in mental health due to the present restrictions related to COVID-19,” says Carol Lambie, Waypoint President and CEO. “While we have a number of initiatives in place to support our employees, we wanted to use the occasion of Mental Health Week to say thank you to all the essential workers.”

 

Everyone is invited to wear green, take a selfie and post it to social media and our Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1077237745967409/ to show their support of Mental Health Week and their appreciation of all essential workers.

 

“We’d love the community to join us in these online recognition efforts while staying safe,” says Lambie. “We’ve transitioned this to a virtual event to make sure we’re adhering to social gathering and physical distancing rules.”

 

In the words of CMHA, we need each other now more than ever. It’s time to #GetReal about how we feel and lean on others for support. Even if we can’t be close physically, we can still support one another through this pandemic.
