October 4th -10th is Mental Health Awareness Week


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.” 

Please watch my TEDx talk about what I'd like you to know about depression from my personal and professional view:
