GET LOUD for CMHA’s 66th Annual
Mental Health Week, May 1-7, 2017
Thank you to everyone who took up the call to #GETLOUD for the 2017 Mental Health Week!
Getting loud means speaking up to stop the discrimination and the stigma that usually go hand in hand with mental illness. It means using your voice to raise awareness and build support. For someone at work. For someone at home. For yourself.
You don’t have to wait until next year’s mental health week, however! Join us. Tell everyone to #GETLOUD to maintain positive mental health all year long! Because the louder we all get, the bigger difference we will make. And there’s a lot of difference to be made.
