This is Mental Illness Awareness Week.
The purpose of the week is to raise awareness of mental health issues and to provide education and resources to those who live with mental health concerns.
#MentalHealth is often misunderstood and can be challenging to talk about, but it is important to remember it is manageable.
If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health concerns, please talk to your family doctor. Many resources are available across the province — no one has to suffer alone.
Alberta PCNs offer free health workshops and activities to help you better manage your physical and mental health.
Workshop topics include:

– and more!
