October 10th is World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Day. World Mental Health Day is observed every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

As you all know, mental health illness affects everyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, education or profession or social status.  As lawyers, our profession has a higher than average rate of mental health illness. We know that a large majority of us suffer in silence, worried about the stigma surrounding asking for help or taking the time we need to get better.

Your GC representatives are planning to host discussion groups and share the Notmyselftoday.ca information and strategies to help engage in a healthy and productive discussion about mental health.

Please take a moment and try the "What's Your Stress Index?" online tool to better understand your stress level right now.

The AJC and the Governing Council remain committed to fighting the stigma and promoting mental health and wellness to all our members and the public service.

Let's continue to talk about mental health and ways to help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.
