Mental Health - Don't Hide It! Speak Up! New Safety Video from Sask. Safety Council
This week, the Saskatchewan Safety Council is focusing on preventing self harm and discussing why it is important to be open and talk about mental health.
To support one another we can be open, talk and be there to listen. This safety resource video shows how powerful speaking up and listening really is.
Community members featured in the video are answering the same question: why is speaking openly about mental health important to you?
Each community member shares their own opinion, but one line stayed the same: Don’t hide it. Speak up.
This is a powerful message that we hope to share across our province.

Please share this important safety resource within your community networks!
Bell Let’s Talk Day (on Wednesday, January 26 this year), hopes to raise both awareness and money for mental health, with the goal of eliminating the stigma around mental illness, supporting organizations across Canada to help improve mental health care access, and funding research that could one day offer promising treatments.
SSC knows how important it is to ask for help if you need it, and why talking about how we are feeling should be as easy as ordering a pizza. This safety resource video can start a conversation in your community, which is great! Let’s talk about mental health!
We can all stop, listen, and talk about it.
