CMHA Ontario, which is based in Toronto, is taking a grass roots approach to launching Mental Health Week 2014. Along with colleagues from our Toronto branch, CMHA Ontario staff and volunteers will be out on the morning of Monday, May 5, 2014 in busy areas of downtown Toronto spreading the word about mental health.
If you’re in Toronto, look for us dressed in the t-shirts emblazoned with the words, Mental Health For All, as we hand out treats to passersby.
CMHA is celebrating 63 years of improving people’s understanding of mental through our Mental Health Week. This is an annual national event that takes place during the first week in May to encourage people from all walks of life to learn, talk, reflect and engage with others on all issues relating to mental health.
