The primary goal of the My Mental Health project was to increase awareness of mental illness to eliminate the misconceptions surrounding it. Perceptions about mental illnesses need to be changed. Stereotypes given to those living with a mental illness can be debilitating. With misconceptions removed, those who need help will be better able to reach out for it.
Join us in our efforts to promote good mental health and the elimination of misconceptions surrounding mental illness. Some great ways to become involved are to integrate the 5 steps into your community or organization, to support your local Canadian Mental Health Association office or other mental health advocacy and service groups, and by letting government and corporations know how important mental health awareness and services are.
