Blooms & Minds: National Depression Screening Day

Blooms for National Depression Screening Day

The significance of National Depression Screening is a topic often discussed within healthcare circles. However, the benefits of recognizing and addressing this mental health condition reach far beyond the walls of clinics and hospitals. At Tooka Florist, we deeply care for the well-being of our North Vancouver community. Today, we discuss the relevance of National Depression Screening and how flowers could be an emotional catalyst for positivity.

The Mental Health Landscape in Canada

According to recent studies, 1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lives. Depression ranks high among these issues, affecting both young and old, and leaving a lasting impact on lives and relationships. The importance of early detection cannot be overstated, making events like National Depression Screening pivotal in raising awareness and promoting self-evaluation.

How Flowers Can Elevate Your Mood

While flowers are not a substitute for professional medical advice, they do have therapeutic properties that could help in elevating your mood. Our Vase Arrangement Collection features an array of beautifully designed flower arrangements that radiate positivity. A study conducted by Rutgers University found that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness and a long-term positive effect on moods.
