• Every year since 1951, Canadian Mental Health Association has hosted Mental Health Week in the first full week in May, making 2021 the 70th year. Mental Health Week is a Canadian tradition, with communities, schools, and workplaces rallying to celebrate, protect and promote mental health.
The core objective of Mental Health Week is to promote mental health because mental health is something we can promote and protect, not just something we can lose. Visit for info and tools about CMHA Mental Health Week.
About the 2021 Canda Mental Health Association Mental Health Week campaign
• The theme of this year’s Mental Health Week is understanding our emotions. Recognizing, labeling, and accepting our feelings are all part of protecting and promoting good mental health for everyone. Naming, expressing, and dealing with our emotions—even when they’re uncomfortable—can make us feel better.
