Mental Health Week 2024

MAY 3, 2024—Every year since 1951, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has hosted Mental Health Week in the first full week of May. This year, CMHA Mental Health Week will be held from May 6th to 12th.

This year’s theme is “A Call to be Kind: Because compassion connects us all.” As stated on the CMHA Mental Health Week website: “We all have the capacity to be compassionate, and we know that doing so can make an enormous difference. This year’s Mental Health Week is centred on the healing power of compassion. In a world plagued by suffering, we emphasize that kindness is equally intrinsic to our humanity. Join us from May 6 to 12, 2024, to explore how compassion connects us all.”

The site also includes toolkits of information and resources for schools, workplaces and day-to-day interactions.
