This year, the Canadian Mental Health Association is celebrating the 60th anniversary of Mental Health Week. That’s 60 years of talking about protecting and improving the mental health of Canadians, from coast to coast!
This year’s theme, “Mental health for all” focuses on the right of every Canadian to enjoy the best possible mental health. While there has been a great deal of progress over the years, there is still a lot of work to do to eliminate the stigmas that surround mental illness.
On the other hand, mental illness does not discriminate. It cuts across all age, racial, religious, educational and socioeconomic lines. One out of every five Canadians will be touched by mental illness at some point in their life.
