Mental Health Week is a national CMHA program that is held annually during the first week in May to engage all Canadians on the topic of mental health.
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 to provide Canadians with information, resources and practical ways to stay mentally healthy all year.
