We know when we need to see a dentist, we know when we need to get our eyes checked, but how do we know when we need to seek professional help for our mental health?
Check Up From The Neck Up is an online diagnostic tool used to recognize the symptoms of mental illness and encourage everyone to take care of their mental health. Patrick J. Kennedy, former US Congressman and son of Senator Ted Kennedy, advocates making a “check up from the neck up” a routine part of mental health screening. On May 11, he will be the guest of honour at a special fundraising gala for the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario. The MDAO provides education, free peer and counselling support, and recovery programs to those affected by a mood disorder.
