Every May for the last 71 years, Canadians in communities, schools, workplaces and the House of Commons have rallied around CMHA(Canadian Mental Health Association) Mental Health Week.
This week is all about empathy. It’s the capacity we share as human beings to step into each other’s shoes. To understand where they’re coming from and what they’re feeling. To listen hard and refuse to judge. It’s also one way to reduce and resolve conflict.
