28 Apr Mental Health Awareness Week
The 66th annual CMHA Mental Health Week was held from May 1-5th. Canadians are hearing the Canadian Mental Health Association’s call to GET LOUD for mental health and they are raising their voices to end discrimination, stigma and shame at mentalhealthweek.ca.
“I think of ‘getting loud’ as a giant megaphone for mental health. 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,”says Dr. Patrick Smith, National CEO,CMHA.

Proudly wearing green for mental health
From May 1-7 2017, the CMHA Mental Health Week website (mentalhealthweek.ca) is the go-to site for getting loud for mental health. Canadians can join the CMHA Mental Health Week Thunderclap and share their social networks for one momentous message; they can send a letter directly to their own MPs, declaring that they are sick of waiting for mental health to top the agenda.
This CMHA Mental Health Week, CMHA is also pleased to partner with singer-songwriter Rob Murphy to present his song, “300 Days.” The song tells the tragic story of a young woman who died by suicide while waiting for care. watch the video now…….
“Let’s make how we feel emotionally and mentally as important a conversation as how we feel physically. During CMHA’s Mental Health Week, let’s start talking and get loud about the importance of our mental health” said Aleta Armstrong Manager, Community Awareness, Youth Service EPI and Family Mental Health Initiative – CMHA Simcoe County Branch.
