Mental Health & Well-Being

In any given year, one in five people in Canada are living with a mental illness. Mental illness ranges in form and severity, and can affect anyone at any time. Mental health problems and illnesses vary widely, and some issues are more common than physical illnesses. Several mental illnesses include: Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Schizophrenia.

Everyone has mental health, and our mental health influences how we think, feel, communicate, and tackle the daily challenges of life.

Often people struggling with mental illness avoid getting help because they believe they will be judged (stigma), or that they might be able to “get over it” on their own. The reality is that mental illness should be taken just as seriously as physical illness, and there are a great deal of programs, services and resources available to help support them.

At The Kettle Society, we meet people wherever they are at in their journey towards health, wellness, recovery, and well-being. We offer support, a helping hand, resources/referrals, or simply a safe space to come in from the outdoors and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Having positive mental health is a contributing factor to physical health and an overall sense of well-being.

How do you want to be remembered?

Leaving a charitable will bequest is one of the most valuable AND thoughtful gifts that you can choose to make.

Including charitable giving within your will also comes with significant tax advantages. A charitable will bequest can reduce taxes owing once passed away. This results in an increase of the inheritances to loved ones.
