Resources For If You Need Help

Because it's mental health week this week, today's blog post is about helping you find some resources if you need help, or someone to talk to.

If you don't know where to start in your research to get help then you should start here at the Canadian Mental Health Association. They've got some great starter points to help you figure out what you need.

They list some people that you can talk to, and some people that you can connect with - such as your doctor. But if you don't have a family doctor, which a lot of people don't have, they also have a website that you find a Canadian Mental Health Association location near you - where ever you happen to be. Check that website out here.

Once you find a Canadian Mental Health Association location go check it out because there you will find resources such as doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, other mental health professionals, community health organizations, and self-help groups.

And if those don't work you can also go to a Crisis Centre. Check out the website and find one near you, or call the number on the website.

If you're a kid or a teen and need some help but getting to a place isn't possible, then all you have to do is call The Kids Help Phone Line. It's Canada wide, free and bilingual so all you have to do is dial the number.

Please remember that these are only some of the numerous help options that are available. There are many more that are just within each individual province.

Please also remember that there is ALWAYS help, and that it's not far away. You are not alone.
