mental healthCanadians are "getting loud" about what mental health really is.

This year, Mental Health Week runs from May 7-13.

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has been hosting Mental Health Week in Canada since 1951. For all 67 years, we have been working hard to end the stigma related to mental illness.

But this year we are going deeper.

1 in 5 Canadians experience a mental health illness or challenge every year. But all 5 in 5 of us have mental health, just like we all have physical health.

"We sometimes use the terms "mental health" and "mental illness" interchangeably. But being mentally well is not the absence of illness – in fact, mental health is something we all need to promote, protect and celebrate, says Claude Anderson, Executive Director, CMHA Grey Bruce.

CMHA Grey Bruce is hosting a mental health week kick-off breakfast on Monday, May 7th as part of the campaign to Get Loud about what mental health really is.

From May 7-13, 2018, is the go-to site to #Get Loud about what mental health really is. CMHA suggests ways to tune into our mental health and offers tools to make it easy for Canadians to #GetLoud on social media.
