Neurology resident Dr. Seth Climans, BMSc'10, finds meaning through human connection - a philosophy that has shaped his clinical experiences and relationships w...ith patients. "Sometimes in medicine we can alleviate a patient’s suffering. Other times, we simply have to hold a patient’s hand and be there with them. These darkest moments help us understand the human condition."

Western, you are not alone.
When we think about mental health, we often think about those who suffer in silence, afraid to ask for help in fear of shame or judg...ment. We think about those who paint a mask on their face, hiding their pain and struggles. We think about our close friends, who suffer because they themselves are afraid to talk and get help.
There is a serious stigma surrounding mental illness, one that may not be apparent at first glance. The education system has done a fantastic job in fostering an environment that encourages mental health awareness and activism through student-run associations and mental health organizations. But just because the stigma doesn’t affect you, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. There is an overbearing cultural perception surrounding mental illness that pervades our society. People feel ashamed to talk about mental illness because they feel that society will shun them for their struggles.
This ideology on mental illness is one that has slowly developed over the past, and it is through activism, advocacy, and education, that we, as a society, seek to change the mentality surrounding mental illness. Bell Let’s Talk has become a nationally recognized day in support of mental health awareness. It seeks to spark conversation and to bring the topic of mental health into the forefront of everyday discussion. It seeks to bring about a culture where mental health can be talked about freely and where those who suffer from mental illness are able to seek help. It seeks to one day achieve an environment where everyone and anyone can talk about their own mental health and wellbeing.
Mental illness can affect anyone, no matter the age, gender, race, or background. What’s important is not being afraid to ask for help, to talk to someone, to speak up for yourself. If there is anything that those who suffer should know, it’s that mental illness gets better, but only when you feel safe in a society that accepts you and cares for you. We want you to understand that the culture surrounding mental health is changing, and that in this world — You are not alone.
Join us at Taylor from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM to engage in the conversation and to discuss what Mental Wellness means to you.
