We call on the automotive industry to join today in #BellLetsTalk to break the stigma and talk about Mental Health.
Mental health is an important part of everyones physical health and personal well-being. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, mental illnesses are characterized by changes in thinking, mood, or behavior associated with significant distress and impaired functioning. Mental illness can take many forms. Examples include mood disorders, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, problem gambling, or substance dependency.
It is important to know that no matter how you are feeling, you are not alone. There is help out there.
It is also important for employers to understand the different types of mental health and how it affects your employees. We encourage you to build into your company culture that people are open and encouraged to discuss mental health.
We also encourage people to use all the online resources to start the conversation around Mental Health
