2016 Mental Health Awareness Week

October 2-8, 2016 is Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week is October 2-8, an annual event where advocates across the nation will come together to spread awareness about the importance of mental health and to speak out against the stigma around mental illness. Thanks to NAMI’s efforts in 1990, U.S. Congress established the first full week in October for the observance.
