Removing The Stigma of Mental Illness – a short stigma removal video

MOVIE NIGHT Increasing your wellness education Removing The Stigma of Mental Illness

Hello Stigma,

Time to go, time to leave.

Mental Illness is a disease and it affects 1 in 4 Canadians at some point in their life as someone in their life will suffer from mental illness.  Your mental health starts with good nutrition from before you were born, through adolescence to adulthood. But when mental illness strikes, thankfully in Canada we have a growing network of healthcare options to help people thrive with mental illness – it may not be cured but people can live productive lives.

Check out this wonderful video that takes you through the myths and facts about mental illness and gives some solutions. Although they suggest more traditional medical support, don’t forget that nutritional imbalances can also affect the brain.  In fact, your brain is the number one body part that is affected by nutritional imbalances.  Work with your medical team to get help and include a nutritionist in your wellness team.

Now, let’s embrace mental illness as a disease, drop the labels and help drop the stigma.

May you feed your brain with knowledge and good nutrition.

To saying goodbye to Stigma,

Jo-Ann Blondin, your 9CupChallenge partner.
