For many, mental health is a daily struggle that affects millions of people yet it is a subject shrouded in stigma and shame. Mental health remains a taboo subject for the simple reason that it is often misunderstood and believed that it is not as serious as physical health.  Mental health problems can manifest in ways that are not apparent to others. The reluctance to address mental health issues perpetuates suffering and also hinders individuals from seeking the help they desperately need.
Untreated mental health issues can lead to a range of problems, including impaired functioning in daily life, strained relationships, and even increased risk of physical health problems.  What makes this situation extremely difficult is that on the surface, things seem to look relatively normal.  It’s almost impossible to tell what a person is going through. They may be experiencing feelings of hopelessness and despair all whilst suffering in silence. Approximately 50 percent of those who suffer from mental illness, do not seek treatment.  When left untreated, daily functioning to simply live, may become impossible.
There may be a multitude of factors working together, ranging from family history, to the environment, traumatic life experiences, personality and physical health problems. 

What can we do as contributing members of society to help this cause is to raise awareness and to make a change. Education and awareness are key components in addressing mental health issues. By destigmatizing mental health and promoting understanding, we can create a more supportive environment for those in need.
Millions of Canadians are struggling and don’t know where to turn. Only some, will get the care they need. The more light we can shed on the subject of mental health, the more barriers we can remove from understanding it and offer help and support for anyone suffering.
