May 3 – 9, 2021: Mental Health Week


Each year, Canadian Mental Health Association focuses on providing mental health awareness and opportunities for connection during Mental Health Week.

This year, from May 3 – 9, 2021, we are focusing on understanding our emotions. Recognizing, labelling and accepting our feelings are all part of protecting and promoting good mental health for everyone.

This Mental Health Week, don’t go uncomfortably numb. #GetReal about how your feel. Name it, don’t numb it.

Mental Health Week 2021: Information & Resources

CMHA Mental Health Week offers practical advice, articles and information to help you #GetReal about how you really feel. To align with this year’s theme, CMHA National has provided articles and checklists that narrow down on how you can determine, and process how you’re feeling. When people put their feelings and thoughts about upsetting experiences into language, their physical and mental health often improve.
