Sunday October 10, 2021 is Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada, and is World Mental Health Day worldwide.

The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.

Mental health is an important component of whole person wellness. At some point in our lives, each one of us will experience a mental health challenge whether personally or through someone we know.

Due to the nature of police work, our active and retired police officers and civilian members are at a higher risk of developing a mental health challenge, and are less likely to report these issues due to fear of stigma surrounding mental health.

The Encompas Mental Health Wellness Program provides OPPA members with a comprehensive approach with timely access to confidential, effective and safe mental health support. To learn more about the program, please visit EncompasCare.ca or call 24/7 1-866-794-9117.
