CBC New Brunswick starts a conversation about mental illness

Last Updated Oct. 23, 2007

Tens of thousands of New Brunswickers struggle with varying degrees of mental illness. It influences their jobs, family relationships and daily life.

Many don't know how to access appropriate or timely support. Others simply choose not to seek help out of fear they will be discriminated against because of their illness.

Health Canada estimates one in five Canadians will be affected by depression, anxiety, mood disorder or some other illness at some point in their lives.

CBC New Brunswick wants to start a conversation about the challenges, frustrations and joys that families encounter while addressing their mental wellness.

The Canadian Mental Health Association estimates 20 per cent of Canadians will experience a significant mental illness during their lifetime.

Our reporters and producers visited doctors' offices, family homes, universities and support groups.

We asked viewers and listeners to share their own experiences and we were overwhelmed by stories of mothers, fathers, daughters and sons struggling to cope with these often hidden challenges in their daily lives.

Starting Oct. 22, CBC New Brunswick will broadcast a series of stories on radio and television examining the mental health system and the people who use it. As the series progresses, we'll post the stories on this website.

You'll hear from people suffering from mental illness, their families and their employers. You'll also hear stories from soldiers, from frontline workers in the community and from health care professionals.

And you'll read essays from New Brunswickers whose lives have been changed by mental illness.

We'll post your e-mail responses to the series.

Please join our conversation, share your view, and help us put an end to the idea that mental illness is just all in your head.
