Mental Illness Awareness Week

October 5th -11th 2014 is Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) in the United States and Canada. 
Since 1990, mental health advocates across North America have joined together during the first full week of October to sponsor awareness, create outreach and provide screenings in the name of mental health.
Also sponsored this week is  National Depression Screening Day on October 9th and World Mental Health Day on October 10th. 
Mental health, a component of well-being, is just as essential as physical health and spiritual health. Learn how to take action, find support and dilute stigma by reaching out for more information here.
