It’s CMHA Mental Health Week! May 2-8, 2016

It’s the Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) 65th Annual Mental Health Week! CMHA is asking Canadians again this year to #GETLOUD to maintain positive mental health and #GETLOUD to get it back.

CMHA is asking Canadians to get loud for mental health and encouraging them to talk more openly and honestly about mental health.

“Getting loud means speaking up to stop the discrimination and the stigma that usually go hand in hand with mental illness. It means taking action and using your voice to raise awareness and build support. For someone at work. For someone at home. For yourself,” said Claudia den Boer Grima, CEO, CMHA-WECB. “Get loud to maintain positive mental health and get loud to get it back. Because the louder we all get, the bigger difference we will make. And there’s a lot of difference to be made.”

This year we’re also getting loud by wearing green in support of positive mental health. Why green? According to BC’s Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre, green ribbons were used in the 1800s to label people who were considered “insane”. We’re going to give the colour green a whole new meaning and turn the historical negative association on its head. Help remove the stigma of mental illness: wear green loud and proud!

CMHA introduced Mental Health Week (MHW) in 1951 to raise awareness of mental illness in Canada. Today, MHW offers practical ways to maintain and improve mental health and support recovery from mental illness and addictions.

Across Canada, Mental Health Week events and activities are hosted in hundreds of CMHA community locations from St. John’s to Prince George. 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 all year.
