World Mental Health Day provides an opportunity for us to reflect on the importance of mental health in our everyday lives and what we can do to support people living with mental illness. Consider the following statistics:

One in three Canadians will experience a mental illness or substance use disorder in their lifetime;

More than 10 Canadians die by suicide each day;
Suicide rates among Indigenous youth are among the highest in the world;

Only 57% of Canadian adults and 43% of Canadian youth report a high capacity to cope with unexpected and difficult problems and day-to-day demands; and

Hardship, trauma, family violence and stigma have been linked to an increased risk of suicide, substance use and mental illness.

If you or someone you know is experiencing emotional distress, or may be at risk of suicide, and need assistance:
