In 1990, Congress established the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) in recognition of the National Alliance on Mental Illness campaign to raise mental illness awareness.
Since then, mental health advocates across the country have joined NAMI in the effort to educate the public about mental illness.
Mental Illness Awareness Week runs from October 4 – 10 and year’s theme is “What People with Mental Illness Want You to Know.”
