CMHA's mandate is to promote the mental health of all people. Education plays a vital role in increasing awareness about all  aspects of mental health.
Annual Events (Linked on sidebar):
- National Mental Health Week: (First Monday in May)
- National Mental Illness Awareness Week : (First week of October)
- World Suicide Prevention Day: (September 10th)
These annual campaigns permit us to communicate with the public, with consumer of the mental health system and with consumers' families and friends on relevant issues related to mental health and illness.
Communication leads to understanding. And understanding is the most effective weapon against the stigma that prevents so many people from seeking help.
