It’s the Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) 64th Annual Mental Health Week! This year, CMHA is asking Canadians to GET LOUD for mental health. CMHA wants Canadians to GET LOUD to be heard, raise awareness, reduce stigma, show support, and ultimately take action.
CMHA introduced MHW in 1951 and it is now a popular week for a variety of mental health and addiction awareness and education campaigns, activities and events across the country.
Across Canada, CMHA’s 105+ community locations are hosting MHW events to raise awareness for mental health in their areas. Activities such as seminars, open houses, film screenings, art shows and walks provide Canadians with information, resources and practical ways to stay mentally and physically healthy. For a full listing of MHW events and activities across Canada, visit CMHA’s MHW website.
This year, CMHA is focusing on increasing awareness of men and boys’ mental health and mental illness by providing information, resources and the practical strategies and advice required to address the mental health and well-being of men and boys.
Mental health is a state of well-being and important for all Canadians. CMHA recognizes that mental health begins where we live, work, and play and actively supports and encourages positive mental health in all aspects of daily life during its Mental Health Week and throughout the year.
