CMHA Ontario joins Canadians across the country in celebrating the 72nd annual Mental Health Week. The national event serves to encourage Canadians to learn, talk, reflect and engage with others on all issues relating to mental health.
This year’s theme, #MyStory, recognizes the power of storytelling and how sharing personal experiences and stories is not only valuable for promoting understanding — it can help us see the world from different perspectives. CMHA Ontario is celebrating by shining a spotlight on our mental health care programs and sharing personal stories of the impact those programs have had on our community. Follow @CMHAOntario on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn as we highlight stories from different programs each day.
