It’s the 22nd annual
MENTAL HEALTH
AWARENESS WEEK

This Year’s National Day of Prayer for
Mental Illness Recovery and Understanding
is
 Tuesday, October 9, 2012.

In 1990, the U.S. Congress established the first week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week [MIAW] in recognition of NAMI‘s efforts to increase mental illness literacy so that we can ALL partner in mental health advocacy.

Since 1990, mental health advocates across the country have joined
together during the first full week of October to s-p-r-e-a-d the w-o-r-d.

That a sign of Mental Health is a refusal to stigmatize Mental Illness!

We ALL need to to help with a global reframe
and a shift toward kindness and understanding.

Pass it on
