National Medical Laboratory Week – April 23-29, 2017
Apr 23 all-day

There are over 1.2 million lab tests performed on a daily basis in Canada. That would work out to approximately one test done every day for every person living in the province of Manitoba.  Laboratory tests are valuable tools regularly used by physicians to diagnose, monitor and treat patients. Each test provides vital information that guides medical decisions.

Mental Health Week – May 1-7, 2017
May 1 all-day

Mental health is key to our well-being. We can’t be truly healthy without it. It involves how we feel, think, act, and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about realizing our potential, coping with the normal stresses of life, and making a contribution to our community.

Good mental health isn’t about avoiding problems or trying to achieve a ‘perfect’ life. It’s about living well and feeling capable despite challenges. Mental well-being is bigger than the presence or absence of a mental illness. People who live with a mental illness can and do thrive, just as people without a mental illness may experience poor mental health.

For more information on mental health programs and services in your community, go to CMHA’s website at cmha.ca and mentalhealthweek.ca.  Or contact your local CMHA, or any other community mental health agency/organization, to obtain information on available supports and services close to you.
