Come join us for a free evening to gain insight into depression and learn strategies to help you and your loved ones.
One in five Canadians (21.3%) will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. All forms of anxiety and depression are the most common. Depression itself affects people of all ages and from all walks of life, including children and seniors, low income earners to high income earners, and depression and anxiety are the fastest rising diagnoses made by doctors. But only 20% of those affected will receive adequate treatment, and almost all (97%) reported that their work, home life, and relationships suffered as a result.
Depression is treatable, and asking for help is not a sign a personal weakness. It is possible to recover from a bout of depression - appropriate, ongoing treatment and support can be an enormous help in your own healing and the healing of someone you love.
