It’s Mental Health Week! May 5-11, 2014 Tell Us How You Really Feel CMHA wants to know, “Are you phine or fine?” To mark the beginning of our 63rd Annual Mental Health Week (MHW), we are launching our first-ever Be Mind Fullinitiative. As part of this new initiative, a campaign begins today that is asking Canadians how they really feel and challenging them to answer the question, “Are you phine or fine?” By defining “Phine” as, “saying you’re fine when you are not,” CMHA’s aim is to start a conversation with Canadians across the country and encourage them to talk about their mental health – as they would about their physical health – be honest and share with others how they really feel.

Many may be experiencing poor mental health, but do not want to talk about it or seek support because of the discrimination and stigma associated with mental health problems.” says Peter Coleridge, National CEO, CMHA. adidas tubular uomo Approximately 7 million Canadians – 20 per cent of the population – live with mental illness. nike air max 2017 dames CMHA has been a champion for mental health since 1918 and has played an important role in improving people’s understanding of mental health and mental illness.
