Is more awareness needed…Mental Illness Awareness Week

Having just completed Recovery Month in September, we have another awareness week…”Faces of Mental Health”.Logo - The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH

In their words, the Mental Illness Awareness Week campaign has fought to increase awareness and decrease stigmatization through the sharing of hundreds of personal stories from individuals living with mental illness.

Do personal stories help us as a group? Have sad stories of poverty or starving children reduced inequality? What do we do after we share our personal secrets? Will we be exploited/more exploited?

MIAW 2018 will be October 1-7 2018

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 in 1992 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. //www.camimh.ca/mental-illness-awareness-week/about-miaw/
