NVSN Journal Entry No. 23

I am so honoured to be a part of the movement that makes treatment for mental illnesses much more Accessible. Somehow, I still feel like an outcast, like every time I go to see a doctor I have to defend myself, protect myself.. I don't want it to be like this anymore.

Dear contributor,

Thank you so much for submitting this entry to the NVSN Journal and thank you for all your efforts in contributing to the movement that promotes positive mental health. It takes a lot of strength to make the decision to seek professional assistance and even more strength to actually go out there and get it. It’s unfortunate that although we’re encouraged to get out there and talk with professionals such as our family doctor, there still exists a possibility of being met with doubt, mistrust and quick prescriptions. Luckily, we have several options at our disposal that give us an opportunity to find the one that works for each one of us. It’s often difficult to find, but the CMHA offers a great service called “Connex Ontario” which assists in finding options that tailor to every individual’s needs. We recommend searching through their website and talking to a Referral Specialist here: https://livechat.connexontario.ca/ECCChat/connex_chat.html to find the option that works best for you.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with the NVSN community and we wish you nothing but success.

Thank you for being you.
