Mental Health Week

May 1-7, 2023



Collectively and individually, we have multiple layers and stories that make us who we are and while each year 1 in 5 Canadians experience a mental illness or mental health issue, 5 in 5 of us – that’s all people – have mental health.

We all have different, yet equally valuable stories which can be used to share one key message: universal mental health care is important and needed now!


What to expect with Mental Health Week and how you can participate

CMHA National will shine a spotlight on community-based mental health care champions, programs and communities while showcasing the importance of securing universal mental health care, what it can look like and how mental health care can be expressed and nurtured (ie art, photos, music, sounds, dance, movement, nature etc).

We encourage you to share your story by using hashtag #MyStory & #MentalHealthWeek to shine a light on your personal journey, a program you offer, how your community supports the mental health of others etc.

Branded assets, and a CMHA toolkit, will be available to support your storytelling.
