CMHA-PEI Mental Health Week

May 2-8 is CMHA’s 71st annual Mental Health Week. MHW is a social change campaign to shift attitudes and perceptions about mental health. The “#GetReal about how you feel” campaign started in 2020 and will continue again this year with an adapted tagline of “#GetReal about how to help”. For 2022, the Mental Health Week theme will focus on Empathy – Be there, listen completely, and see the world through their eyes. It’s how to really help. Before you weigh in, tune in.
