Mental Illness Awareness Week

Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) is an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established in 1992 by the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada.
 
Although we are no longer running the faces campaign, CAMIMH will still be participating in MIAW through increased advocacy efforts, working towards a Canada where all who need mental health resources can access them without barriers.
