  6. This week is Mental Illness Awareness Week. Did you know that more than 6 million Canadians are impacted by mental illness? People with mental illness are capable of leading rewarding and productive lives when they received proper diagnosis and effective medical treatment, but they need support rather than stigmatization that sends people into the shadows to suffer alone in silence.People with mental illness may be your sister or brother, your neighbour, your classmate.  They are just like you and I.  Talking about our mental health is the one of the first steps to reducing stigma.  So be an advocate and start a conversation today. Visit www.camimh.ca for stories of real people who have experienced mental illness and how they are working to reduce stigma.
