Mental health issues, especially youth addiction, affects the way we think about ourselves, relate to others, and interact with the world around us. They affect our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Mental illnesses can disrupt a person's life and create challenges, but with the right support, a person can get back on a path to sustainability and wellness.
There are many different types of mental illness that affect people in different ways. Within each mental illness, people may have very different symptoms and challenges. Access to services, support from loved ones, and the ability to participate in communities play a big part in the way people experience mental illnesses. Culture, background, and personal beliefs also shape the way people understand mental illnesses.
It's never been more important to talk about mental health. Talking openly about mental health destroys dangerous taboos and normalizes treatment. In what is probably the most stressful year on record, one of the biggest threats to our mental health is the stigma surrounding it.
