On May 28, 2021, the day after 215 children’s unmarked graves were discovered on the grounds of a former Indian Residential school near Kamloops B.C., the House of Commons passed a bill to establish a statutory holiday called the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. The passing of the bill fulfills one of the many recommendations made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report to honour survivors, their families, their communities, and to ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of Indian Residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.

The significance of this day will be to remember the victims, survivors of Canada’s Indian Residential School System. In Canada’s efforts to forge a new country, one of its goals was to absorb the First Nations into the general population and to extinguish their culture. In 1878, the new government under the administration of John A. McDonald commissioned a report to look at residential schools in the United States. That report lay the foundation to say that only residential schools could separate Aboriginal children from their parents, culture and cause them “to be merged and lost” within the nation. The report said that the government “should work with the Christian churches to open these schools.” Thus began the Indian Residential School system here in Canada in 1883. The government of Canada made school attendance compulsory in 1894 and empowered the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to seize children from reserves and bring them to the residential schools. Years later, government officials known as Indian Agents continued to carry out the role of gathering children to attend the schools.

Origin of Orange Shirt Day

Phyllis Webstad was only 6 years old when she was sent to St Joseph’s Mission Indian Residential school in British Columbia. Her grandmother had taken her to the store and bought her a brand new orange shirt to wear to school. Phyllis was proud of her new orange shirt but when she arrived, she was stripped of her clothing and never saw her orange shirt again. She was neglected, abused, and made to feel like she did not matter. Phyllis recalled that every child cried to go home, but nobody cared.  Fortunately, Phyllis was able to return home to her grandmother. As she became an adult, she said that the colour Orange reminded her of that time in her life. She later used her story as a platform to raise awareness to Orange Shirt Day and “That Every Child Matters.” Phyllis’ story is a difficult one to hear, but has helped to raise awareness to the legacy of Canada’s Indian Residential school system and the impacts to survivors like Phyllis and their families.  Read her full story here.

Wear an Orange Shirt on Thursday, September 30, 2021 – the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

October 3-9 is Mental Illness Awareness Week in Canada. It is a time to promote awareness of mental health issues in general, reduce the stigma around mental illness, and shed light on those who unfortunately still tend to suffer in silence and isolation. Mental illness does not discriminate. It affects people of all ages, education, income levels, and cultures.

The Elderly and Depression

One of the segments of the population where mental illness is often overlooked is among the elderly. The rates of those diagnosed with depression in older adults aged 65 and over are about the same as the national average for the general population. However, the rate of those in this age group experiencing general symptoms of depression(not diagnosed) is significantly higher. About 15% of older persons report symptoms of depression (Canadian Psychological Association).

Many of the elderly across our nation live alone and are significantly isolated from family and society. The Covid-19 pandemic has only further intensified that isolation. Older adults are not connected socially in ways that younger generations tend to be. The effects of loneliness and isolation worsen anxiety and depression and make it more difficult for them to reach out and find the support they need.

We need to be sensitive to the needs of the elderly in our community, whatever their living situation. Keeping connected with our older loved ones will allow us to understand their mental health needs better and help them find the services they may benefit from and get the help they need.

As part of Mental Illness Awareness Week, on Oct. 7, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Swan Valley Branch is offering a free 1-hour online presentation on Mental Health Experiences and Older Adults. Take advantage of this resource to learn more about the mental health challenges that many older adults experience and learn practical ways to promote good mental health and well-being among the elderly.
