National Depression Screening Day

WHEN: Thursday, October 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

WHERE: ACAD Cafeteria

Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and it often receives the least amount of attention. As an “invisible” disability, depression and other mental illnesses are often regarded by others as “weaknesses” or “excuses.” If you or someone close to you has ever had a mental illness, you know that nothing could be further from the truth.

Mental Illness Awareness Week

Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) is an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established in 1992 by the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada.

ACAD + ACADSA are here to support you during Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW)
