MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK MAY 7 - 13, 2007

April 23, 2007

“Work/Life Balance: It’s a matter of time” is the theme for this year’s national Mental Health Awareness Week, May 7 – 13, 2007. 

Prairie North Health Region (PNHR) is proud to participate in this Canada-wide designation which this year aims to increase public awareness of the need to balance work, play and family life. 

This is an important concept, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, as 58% of Canadians express that they feel “overload” and find it difficult to juggle all of their responsibilities. 

Prairie North Health Region has once again joined forces with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Battlefords Branch to organize and host a number of special events to help raise awareness of the importance of good mental health. A variety of activities are available for people of all ages.

On Tuesday, May 8, 2007 Dr. Wayne Schlapkohl, registered doctoral Psychologist with Prairie North Health Region will be doing a public presentation on balancing work and family responsibilities. This will be at the lecture theatre in the North Battleford Public Library at 7:00 p.m.

Dr. Schlapkohl will also be addressing this issue on Access Communication’s popular community informational program in The Battlefords “Talk of The Town”. The interview is to be aired on Access Channel 7 each day during Mental Health Awareness Week. CMHA Battlefords Branch Executive Director Wendy Brundige will be with Dr. Schlapkohl to talk about the events planned for Mental Health Awareness Week.

The Week’s events include a flag raising ceremony at City Hall at 10:30 a.m. Monday, May 7, 2007 with Mayor Julian Sadlowski declaring Mental Health Awareness Week in North Battleford. A barbecue will follow from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CMHA office in North Battleford, 1011 – 103 Street. The barbecue is sponsored by the North Battleford and District Labour Council. The public is invited to attend. Cost is $5.00 per lunch.

New to Mental Health Awareness Week activities in The Battlefords this year is an essay writing contest which targets Grade 6 students. The contest is intended to bring awareness to school aged children of the importance of good mental health. PNHR and a local representative of the Saskatchewan Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association are sponsoring the contest. 

Posters displaying the Mental Health Awareness Week theme “Work/Life Balance:  It’s a matter of time” will be on display throughout the week at the North Battleford library to encourage readers to use the resources of the local library to learn about and improve their own work/life balance.  

The CMHA has teamed up with the Battlefords Chamber of Commerce to educate businesses on how they can help their employees achieve a work/life balance. 

The CMHA has developed a quick quiz to assist people in assessing their own work/life balance. The quiz will be available during Mental Health Awareness Week on CMHA posters in the community, and on Access Cable Channel 13. The quiz will also be printed on the back of PNHR employee pay statements later in May.  Watch for it and take the quiz!
