dandelion with green sky Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 1-7, 2018) and World Mental Health Day (October 10, 2018) provide opportunities to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and to build support for people in need.

One in three Canadians will experience a mental illness or a substance use disorder in their lifetime. Yet stigma remains a barrier that prevents many from seeking or offering help. Speaking openly about mental health and providing a safe, barrier-free environment to do so is key to reducing stigma.

October 10th is Green Shirt Day at Westmount Mid High.  If you have a green shirt and want to wear it, please join us in recognizing World Mental Health Day.
