May 1 to 7 is Mental Health Week in Canada. People living with chronic pain can experience a variety of mental health conditions, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Share how you are feeling below and spread the word to end stigma of mental illness.
We have some articles on Live Plan Be, including an article on trauma and PTSD. On Thursday, May 4, 2017, we are hosting a webinar on the importance of trauma-informed care and chronic pain with Dr. May Caprio.
Learn more about Mental Health Week on the Canadian Mental Health Association website.
