APRIL 27, 2023—Every year since 1951, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has hosted Mental Health Week in the first full week in May. This year, CMHA Mental Health Week will be held from May 1st to 7th.
This year’s theme is “My Story.” Storytelling is a fundamental part of being human. Stories help build connections and strong communities. Storytelling, in all its forms, supports mental health and reduces stigma. This year’s Mental Health Week will amplify some of the voices and spaces within which mental health exists across Canada.
