In Conversation Series #1

The first episode of our ‘In Conversation Series’ explores the topic of mental health. Dr. Robichaud describes mental health as a general state of well-being where a person is content in their lives, and is able to cope with life’s challenges with confidence. Just like physical health, mental health requires thoughtful maintenance through self-care practices. It’s especially important to utilize healthy living tools during times of stress when our mental health could be negatively impacted. Sometimes mental health challenges can turn into more serious mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, and although commonplace, many people wait a long time before seeking help due to social stigma surrounding mental health issues. In reality, having an anxiety issue is just like having a broken leg, and there is hope and help available. As a society we have work to do until we achieve universal acceptance and empathy towards mental health issues. We hope to inspire you to take care of your mental health just as you do your physical health. Time 0:32:06
