During one’s lifetime, it’s normal to experience highs and lows. These ups and downs shape who we are and make us unique. For people living with anxiety, depression, or bipolarity - and their loved ones - these more troublesome episodes can seem like mountains. That’s why Relief exists: to help you live with your own version of relief. Every day. Because having the tools to take charge of your own mental health means you’re already on the right path.
Why support Relief?
Relief's innovative and proven approach draws on people’s individual skills to help them take charge of their mental health.
Relief's approach enables people living with anxiety, depression, or bipolarity to identify strategies that will reduce their symptoms, prevent relapses, and improve their well-being.
Relief position itself as the third pillar of mental health since this approach complements pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy.
Sooner or later, most Canadians will live with a mental illness or be affected by a family member, friend, or colleague. Like physical illnesses, mental illnesses can happen to anyone of any age, gender, social status, educational level, nationality, or ethnic background.
4 000 000 Canadians live with anxiety or depression, and by age 40, about 50% of the population will have or have had a mental illness*.
