Online Mental Health Checkup Expanded

Apr 20, 2007 04:30 AM

Check Up From the Neck Up, the campaign to let people take control of their mental health, is going Ontario-wide.

The checkup, private and self-administered online at checkupfromtheneckup.ca, received almost 2 million hits by last fall, after organizers asked 300,000 people in the GTA to participate.

Advocate Margaret Trudeau and musician Amy Sky will speak at the campaign's formal launch May 2.

"Too many Ontarians suffer needlessly from mental illness or its stigma and the Mood Disorders Association is here to help Ontarians get the help they need," says Ontario Lieutenant Governor James K. Bartleman. As part of the Ontario wide-push, the Ontario Psychological Association has members willing to see people within two weeks and on a sliding payment scale or at cost during the campaign.

The majority of all health care professionals who responded to a survey after the project had heard of the campaign: 72.8 per cent of doctors, 100 per cent of psychologists and 84.6 per cent of other professionals in the GTA area. The majority of all health care professionals reported receiving campaign materials.

"We are determined to have a significant impact on the mental health of all Canadians, starting with those who live in Ontario," says Karen Liberman, executive director of the Mood Disorders Association.

No it's okay, I do that sort of thing all the time. I'm 40 years old so I don't think it was a "senior moment" although maybe I can just wait a while so I can attribute it to that. In your case it was probably more attributed to the fact that you're really intelligent and you know lots of technical terms, and you were thinking Zomig is what causes the vessels to shrink, and at the same time you were thinking about what a migraine is and therefore when you were writing you combined the two...
