Mental Health Week: May 5-11, 2014

Since 1951, the national office of the Canadian Mental Health Association has commemmorated Mental Health Week. The week is an annual event where CMHA branches and divisions across the country bring the mental health message to the broader community. It is designed as a celebration of mentally healthy lifestyles and positive attitudes, as well as a source of information and support. For Mental Health Week, CMHA branches in BC have organized presentations, pancake breakfasts, thrift store sales, craft fairs, kite-flying events, barbecues, fun runs, yoga fests and other community events right across the province. Both the National office and BC Division support branches with marketing support via media and educational or promotional materials. Mental Health Week is the first full week of May from Monday to Sunday
