This week marks Mental Health Week and the Canadian Mental Health Association is inviting everybody to get loud for mental health.

For the 68th year, the association have invited communities, schools and workplaces to rally around Mental Health Week.

The association says it's about having a sense of purpose, feeling connected to our communities, knowing who we are, coping with stress and enjoying life.

Former politician Andrew Younger says he continues to deal with his own mental health well being 

He says that if you are worried about someone, reach out.

"If they get mad at you for reaching out, too bad," said Younger. "From my point of view, I'd rather make sure you're okay and have you never talk to me again because you're embarrassed than not check on you."

He says everybody deals directly or indirectly with mental health at some point in their lives.
