These are some of, but definitely not even close to all of the useful links on the Canadian Mental Health Association website. If you would like more information about mental health, please see: http://www.cmha.ca/mental-health/

If at any time you feel that you cannot cope, or you need external assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, psychosis, etc. may feel like they have no one to talk to. The authors of the blog, having dealt with mental illness themselves, understand how that feels – it exacerbates the underlying condition, making it much worse. However, don’t be afraid. You do not have to suffer alone. Every two in ten Canadians suffers from some mental illness in their life. It is normal. You are not a pariah at all. If at any time you feel that you are a threat to yourself or others, please contact either the suicide hotline or one of the other crisis services:
