Community invited to Get Loud for Mental Health Week 2022

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—Mental Health Week 2022 is just around the corner! This year’s Mental Health Week is from May 2-6, 2022 and it’s time to Get Loud for Mental Health Haldimand Norfolk.

This year, the theme for Mental Health Week is empathy. When times are tough, we need to be there for each other. Practising empathy helps us regulate our emotions, connect with others, and feel less isolated. 

For the past two years, we have been encouraged to “stay home,” and now we are shifting to “learning to live” with the virus. This shift in messaging calls on us to adopt a shift in mindset, from one of avoidance and fear to one of resilience and adaptability. Changing measures and messaging do not mean we will return to pre-pandemic life. While we are eager to move forward, anxiety, stress, and fear will still run high over the next several months, and the mental health fallout from the pandemic will certainly last much longer.
