July 3, 2019 — Everyone should joyfully play: a piece on mental illness





Consider the alarming statistic from the Canadian Institute for Health Information: over the past decade the visits to emergency rooms by young people having a mental health issue has increased by 75 per cent.
That’s hard to write.
Because it sends an alarming message, whether we want to face it or not: lots, and lots of kids out there are mentally unhealthy.
Moreeover, we must wonder how many others are suffering in silence.
Because it’s just too painful to talk about.
That’s why Wednesday’s announcement involving the Mental Health Foundation and the Stollery Children’s Hospital isn’t only timely, but is a beacon of hope.

What’s really scary and really sad is the culture that we have and the way we look at mental health. It was a big reason why I didn’t talk with anybody about it originally and why I didn’t want to talk about it when I knew something was wrong. Learning how quickly actually talking with someone and getting some help resolved my issues just made me mad. It’s sad that I wasted a month of my life that I’ll never get back because I was too proud to talk with someone about it.
