Mental Health Week May 4 - 10, 2015

Mental Health Week 2015

May 4 - 10 is Mental Health Week and this year’s theme is “Get Loud for Mental Health”, focusing on the mental health of men and boys. Mental illness often goes undetected or untreated in men due to an additional pressure associated with stigma. Men may be reluctant to seek help because they feel it is 'unmanly' to admit that they are struggling, and neglect the resources available to help them. 

The overarching focus this year, as it is every year, is to get people talking about, engaging and reflecting on mental health issues.

Here’s some of what you can look for that CAMH is focusing on this week:
