Mental Illness Awareness Week
October 6-12, 2019
EACH YEAR MILLIONS OF AMERICANS FACE THE REALITY OF LIVING WITH A MENTAL HEALTH CONDITION.
During the first full week of October, NAMI and participants across the country are raising awareness of mental illness. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.
We believe that mental health issues are important to address year-round, but highlight them during #MIAW. It provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of the tens of millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
During Mental Illness Awareness Week on Oct. 6-12, 2019, join NAMI in shining a light on mental illness and replacing stigma with hope!
