International Self-Care Day


CMHA Waterloo Wellington joins individuals and organizations around the globe in celebrating International Self-Care Day on July 24, which aims to raise public awareness of the importance of self-care to stay healthy and prevent or delay illness. This year’s theme ‘Feel Good, 7/24’, highlights the fact that the benefits of self-care are experienced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Mental well-being is recognized as a pillar of self-care. Prioritizing self-care can increase resiliency, which can be helpful when faced with problems, stress, and other difficult situations. Many mental health programs provide strategies to improve resiliency skills like problem-solving, assertiveness, balancing obligations and expectations, and developing support networks.

In recognition of International Self-Care Day, TriOS College, Kitchener Campus is hosting a Health and Wellness Fair at Market Square from 11:30am-1:30pm. CMHA Waterloo Wellington will be in attendance, click here to read more
