I wanted to make a video in support of #BellLetsTalk Day, however, so much has happened over the past few years alone that, I couldn't find a topic to focus on. So, I decided instead, to touch on a little bit of everything to show I how much I love and support everyone involved in #MentalHealth awareness and those that are working to #EndTheStigma of #MentalIllness.

I grew up not eating pork for religious reasons so, I just recently discovered prosciutto. IT'S AMAZING. This is my homemade grilled baby kale, prosciutto and brie on whole wheat. Sorry, it was so good I had to @Instagram it. Lol! #instagramfood #homemadefood #mamaskitchen #eatinghealthy #Organic #wholefoods #homemade #nomnom #yumyum

(Skip to 3:41 for the explanation of Form 2.) Sometime last year (2016), I spoke to Peel police because I was concerned that my husband was going to hurt himself but my family doctor didn't believe I had enough evidence to get him "formed" by a medical professional. I was told that I could appeal to a judge and have him "formed" myself. I tried Googling the Mental Health Act and how to have someone "formed" and was still confused. It wasn't until my husband went "missing" at the end of November, before a Peel police officer sat me down in my kitchen to explain to me in full how to have someone "formed." I feel as though the Mental Health Act can be confusing if you're not familiar with it so, hopefully, the loved ones of someone who may be experiencing a mental health crisis, will find this video helpful.

Form 2 is not a substitute for the advice of a doctor. If you can, call 9-1-1. But, sometimes, you might run into a situation where EMS, firefighters and/or police don't feel they have enough to forcibly take someone to the hospital. You can ask your family doctor to have your loved one "formed" but if you don't have the cooperation of your family doctor, you may need to speak to a Justice of the Peace. If there's an real emergency, always call 9-1-1.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) site has a good explanation of some of the most commonly used forms under the Mental Health Act of Ontario: http://bit.ly/2kkR9f2

My 3-year-old dressed herself, packed a backpack and told me she was heading to school. Two problems: It's a Saturday and she's not yet registered for school. Lol. @PeelSchools #momlife #motherhood #beingamom #parenting #cute #lol

Someone was kind enough to give me a visual presentation on what makes up #VeteranAffairs and the different ways to access services through different departments (backdoor entry so-to-speak). I also had the opportunity to briefly leaf through a book filled with the federal laws that govern the #VA and how they determine how disabled someone is. It only had, I'd say, a couple of thousand pages. 😕 But seriously. I am grateful. Thank you. Without someone explaining it to me, I'd be genuinely lost. #SupportOurTroops #SupportOurVeterans #Veteran #veterans #FamiliesOfVeterans #PTSD #PTSDAwareness #Army #BringJasonHome
