Get Ready to Get Loud for the 66th CMHA Mental Health Week.
Time to work on your outside voice! Please join us and tell everyone to #GETLOUD from May 1st to May 7th,.
The 66th CMHA Mental Health Week will be louder than ever before. Get ready to lift up your mental health megaphone! This year, our focus is on ending wait times for mental health care because too many Canadians are on standby for the care and services they need. We are sick of waiting.
Let’s end wait times and take control of our lives NOW!
Building on last year’s successful “Get Loud for Mental Health” campaign, the CMHA Mental Health Week slogan for 2017 is: Sick of waiting. Get loud for mental health. The slogan doesn’t mince words. It tells it like it is, complete with a double meaning: Canadians are not only tired of waiting for mental health care, but waiting is also making us sicker.
The people we love – and the people we elect – need to hear that mental health is an essential part of health, and of health care. And we just can’t wait anymore.
