Mental Health Week 2023

Within our stories is the mental health care we all need.

Each May, people across Canada rally around CMHA’s Mental Health Week. Inaugurated by CMHA in 1951, May 1-7, 2023 marks the 72nd annual Mental Health Week in Canada. 

This year’s Mental Health Week will amplify some of the voices and spaces within which mental health exists across Canada, especially at the community level through non-profit agencies and programs.

Storytelling is a fundamental part of being human. Stories help build connections and strong communities. Storytelling, in all its forms, supports mental health and reduces stigma.

Connect with us on social media using the hashtags #MyStory and #MentalHealthWeek
