Social Connection #GetReal
May 4 – 10 is Mental Health Week. For the year 2020, the theme of Mental Health Week is ‘social connection’ #GetReal
Mental Health Week is a Canadian tradition, acknowledging the importance of celebrating, protecting, and promoting mental health for all.
- Research shows that social connection and social support are factors that protect and promote good mental health.
- Feeling socially connected means you feel close and connected to others, and you don’t have to be in physical proximity to nurture a sense of closeness and connection.
- Social isolation and loneliness are bad for everyone’s mental health.
