Mental Illness Awareness Week | 2017

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)

Sexual Assault Awareness + Prevention Week

September 18-22, 2017, is Sexual Assault Awareness + Prevention Week (SAAPW) at ACAD. The goal of SAAPW is to raise awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. 

Sexual violence is a major public health, human rights, and social justice issue and it's everybody's responsibility to end it.
