There is no health without mental health.
One in 5 Canadians lives with a mental illness. But 5 in 5 — that’s everyone, has mental health.
The Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division (CMHA NS) promotes positive mental health all year round, and we are proud to join organizations around the world in highlighting the need for education around illness during Mental Illness Awareness week, a national initiative that encourages Canadians to learn about mental illness and share their experiences with it. This year, MIAW it is being marked from October 3 – 9.
Join the conversation this Mental Illness Awareness Week with the hashtag #MIAW21 on social media.
