Mental Illness Awareness Week

October 7, 2019, News

Mental Illness Awareness Week takes place from October 6 – 12, 2019. Every year during Mental Illness Awareness Week, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) works to educate the public, eliminate stigma and advocate for better access to mental health care.

Why Care? Campaign

  NAMI is raising awareness of mental illness by sharing the WhyCare? Campaign. Care is a simple word, but a powerful way to change lives for people affected by mental illness.

There are many ways to get involved and demonstrate WhyCare? by sharing stories about why you care for others, how support or care from others has affected you, or what it means to have access to care by sharing through text, graphics, video or any other medium.and show you care by sharing stories about how you care for others, how support or care you received has impacted your journey, or what it means to have access to treatment and quality care.
