精神健康周,总理发表声明

2020年5月4日

安大略渥太华

 “今天是精神健康周的第一天。让我们所有人讨论精神健康的重要性,并反思我们自我保健的问题,现在正是时候。

“良好的精神健康对我们的幸福至关紧要,但这个问题经常被忽略为不那么紧迫,或者不值得我们的照顾和关注的事情。从而导致太多的人在沉默中遭受痛苦,害怕遭遇歧视或被污名化。

值此特别挑战的时期,COVID-19疫情的影响给我们的心理健康带来更大的压力。疾病大流行威胁了我们的安全,扰乱了我们的日常生活,并使我们脱离了常规的支持网络。许多人因此感到孤独、并对未来感到焦虑和害怕。在我们继续保持身体距离的同时,保持社交上的联系比以往任何时候都更为重要。

“加拿大政府通过一个名为‘ 加拿大共同健康Wellness Together Canada’之新的门户网站,向所有加拿大人提供进一步的精神健康支持。无论您是感到压力还是悲伤、面临药物使用问题、或是有兴趣了解如何保持心理健康,我都鼓励所有人探索可用的免费资源、工具和专业支持服务。

“要渡过当前难关,我们每个人都需要互相支持。如果您知道有人遇到艰难,请给他们发送短信或给他们打个电话。如果您自己在挣扎,请主动找人寻求帮助。没有任何的挑战,不能在我们共同努力之下予以克服。”

Statement by the Prime Minister on Mental Health Week

Ottawa, Ontario

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Mental Health Week:

“Today is the first day of Mental Health Week. It is a time for us all to talk about the importance of mental health and to reflect on our own self-care.

“Good mental health is so critical to our well-being, and yet it is often dismissed as less urgent or deserving of our care and attention. This leaves far too many to suffer in silence, fearing discrimination or stigma.

“During these particularly challenging times, the impacts of COVID-19 are placing an even greater strain on our mental health. The pandemic has threatened our safety, disrupted our daily lives, and disconnected us from our regular support networks. Many people are left feeling isolated, anxious, and afraid for the future. While we must continue to be physically distant, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected.

“The Government of Canada is offering additional mental health support to all Canadians, through a new online portal called Wellness Together Canada. Whether you are feeling stressed or sad, dealing with substance use, or interested in learning how to maintain your mental health, I encourage everyone to explore the free resources, tools, and professional support services available.

“To get through this, we all need to be there for each other. If you know someone who is having a hard time, send them a text or give them a call. If you are struggling, reach out and ask for help. There is no challenge that we cannot overcome together.”
