Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) is an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established by the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada.
This year the campaign is focussing on increased advocacy efforts, working towards a Canada where all who need mental health resources can access them without barriers.
Today and every day, CMHA is advocating for a Canada where everyone has access to mental health care wherever and whenever they need it.
