20% Of Canadians Suffer From Depression

Chances are you know someone who is struggling with a mental illness because or you will personally experience a mental illness in your lifetime. Around 8% of adults will experience a major depression at some time in their lives. You want to help your loved one as best you can but it's hard when you can't see where they are hurt. Here are some things you can say and do to support someone with depression.


Validate Their Condition

 When their pain and symptoms are mostly invisible people tend not to believe them. We still don't know exactly why people get depression, we know that there are imbalances with transmitters in the brain but this doesn't explain why some medications work for some people and why they don't help the next person at all. We know that their pain is real and they didn't choose it.


Do Not Tell Them To Think Positively 

They have tried that already! It is like telling someone with diabetes to think positively to make their blood sugars go down. Often someone living with depression lose friends when they can't think positively. Do not shame them for being negative as this will only make them feel even more guilt; depression makes it easier to experience anger, frustration and guilt. When they experience gratitude and positivity it feels like pretending to them. You may try deflecting the conversation to nicer things in their day, if that doesn’t work focus on what you want out of the conversation, instead of making it about them. Encourage them to talk to you about their diagnosis and what they are feeling when they are ready.


Do Help Them To Adhere To Their Medications When You Can

It’s important to remind them that it takes 4-6 weeks to see any changes IF the right medication was selected. It’s a game of trial and error and they need to be reminded to take it even when it feels like it’s doing anything. Close to half of patients stop taking their antidepressants within four months without discussion with their doctor. For many medications, it’s important to taper off slowly or you can get withdrawal symptoms (even if there wasn’t a noticeable change).

Encourage Them To Keep A Journal Of Their Journey With Mental Illness

Tell them to write down how they feel, any changes in mood, when they start and stop taking medications. This can be important later as the person will most likely have to try a few different medications before they find one that works.



There are many reasons why people stop taking antidepressants and the first step is to find out why. If it’s because of side effects encourage them to see our pharmacist, many of these side effects are transient and go away once their body gets used to the medication. Also let Cheetham's Pharmacy know if they are struggling with adherence. We can work with your loved one to educate more on their condition and how the medication works, to make the pills up into blister packs to help keep them on track and work with scheduling around other medications, work or school. If cost is an issue let our pharmacist know and we can do our best to find the lowest cost of the drug.

Bridge City Duct Cleaning, a Trusted Saskatoon Expert Shares 3 Reasons Why Duct Cleaning Will Benefit You and Your Home!

Bridge City Duct Cleaning, Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Duct cleaning professionals know that cleaner air means a healthier home and a healthier you. With many years of experience in the HVAC industry, Bridge City Duct Cleaning provides you with a breath of fresh air every time you step into your home.

Ducts accumulate dirt, debris and allergens and over time these particles become airborne every time your heating or cooling equipment turns on. Getting your ducts professionally cleaned helps improve the indoor air quality in your home, and enhances the efficiency of your heating/cooling systems.

Still on the fence? Bridge City Duct Cleaning gives you 3 reasons why the choice is simple!

Removing Odor

An odor in your home can mean that dust, mold or mildew may be present in the air ducts, fresheners or candles only mask the problem. Air duct cleaning eliminates the smell almost completely.

Healthy Living

Removing contaminants which can include, pollen, mold, rodent droppings, and even pet dander from your ducts helps to achieve better indoor air quality which can help to minimize reaction to  allergies and asthma.

Saving Money

Duct cleaning is an important part of regular maintenance that can help save you money in energy bills. By removing the buildup of dust from cooling system coils will reduce energy usage by up to twenty one percent, and at the same time prolong the life expectancy of your heating and cooling system.

Here Kathy shares a tip on her Continued Education: 

Every year Kathy attends this conference and returns recharged and reconnected with her Pilates colleagues and peers!

 

Continuing Education

-Requirements: 

PMA certification is valid for 2 years. The PMA requires all PMA Certified Pilates Teachers to earn 16 PMA approved CECs (1 hour = 1 CEC) in order to renew certification at the end of their two year term.

Rationale: 

As stated in the PMA Code of Ethics, PMA-certified professionals agree to continue gaining education to enhance their skills and knowledge, and to provide the highest quality services to clients.

First and foremost, the purpose of continuing education is for the protection of the public. Continuing education that advances knowledge, skills, and abilities, supports the Pilates professional in providing safe and effective instruction. 

Secondly, given the dynamic nature of the Pilates industry, it is imperative for Pilates professionals to go beyond entry-level and embrace the cutting edge of scientific understanding and validation of the Pilates Method; to stay abreast of the development in the field in order to stay competitive; and to broaden their skill set with a variety of approaches including training beyond the Pilates paradigm in order to enhance their capacity to work with a variety of clients including special populations.
