CKA / ACK Invites Kinesiologists to prepare to talk MENTAL HEALTH

2021 Mental Health Week: May 3 - 9    
Kinesiologists encourage Canadians to be active!

Every May, the CMHA Mental Health Week helps to shift societal beliefs and perceptions about mental health. It promotes behaviours and attitudes that foster well-being, support good mental health and create a culture of understanding and acceptance. This year's theme – Name it, don't numb it – is key in these pandemic times of intense pain and anxiety.

Kinesiologists are human movement specialists who provide scientific advice and physical activity treatments and therapies that improve recovery, health and well-being, through all phases of life. From May 3 to 9, 2021, Kinesiologists across Canada will join the conversation about how physical activity can have an impact on Canadians' mental health.

Tell your clients that Kinesiologists can offer new strategies for those struggling with mental health, including opportunities to lead a more active lifestyle and benefit from being physically active. Invite them to begin with the eMentalFitChallenge! For clients looking for a more personalised approach, offer to discuss their situation so you can best determine how to support them.
