The Proclimation


Mental Health is vital to our well-being and enjoyment of life. Depression, anxiety and other mental illness can disrupt that process and can be very debilitating for individuals and their families. Mental health problems affect people of all ages and backgrounds:

WARNING SIGNS MAY INCLUDE:

  1. Feelings of sadness, fatigue, loss of motivation, crying spells, helplessness, isolation which have been ongoing for more than two weeks
  2. Changes in behavior, personality, sleeping/eating habits
  3. Difficulty concentrating
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Intense worries, fears, agitation
  6. Psychosomatic complaints such as racing heart, physical discomfort, shortness of breath
  7. Mood swings
  8. Questioning purpose in life, suicidal ideation
  9. Delusional thinking/hallucinations
  10. Changes affecting daily functioning and enjoyment in life

Help is available. Mental health and physical health go hand in hand in maintaining quality of life. We must all work together to overcome the stereotypes and fears that prevent us from seeking help.
