Community Events

This week in May, Canadian governments acknowledge Emergency Preparedness Week and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) presents Mental Health Week.  Please see the links below for more information.

Emergency Preparedness Week link:

Be prepared for emergencies, such as those caused by climate change and other threats, as these are becoming more common.

Mental Health Week Link:

Please ask for help when mental health issues begin to negatively impact your life, at any stage of life. Also work on strategies for your and your families’ well-being.

https://mentalhealthweek.ca/strategies-for-well-being/

The strategies outlined in the mental health week article are indeed similar to Guru Nanak’s philosophy. Kirit Karo, Naam Japo, Vand Chhako.  It’s about taking the time to making yourself stronger through active living, meditation, and self-awareness and then applying your strengths and abilities to build a caring and resilient community.

It’s about knowing that we have the capacity as humans to get through most painful and difficult events if we stay mentally and emotionally strong. It requires work,  but each one of us can be more resilient.

Nanak Naam Chardi Kala Tere Bhane Sarbat Da Bhala
