The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health and its Campaign Connections

The Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) is a non-profit organization comprised of health care providers as well as organizations which represent individuals with lived experience of mental illness.  Established in 1998, CAMIMH is a volunteer run organization that provides mental health education to the public.  A fundamental objective of CAMIMH is to engage Canadians in a national conversation about mental illness. By starting this conversation, CAMIMH hopes to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and provide insight into the services and support available to those living with mental illness.

 One of CAMIMH’s major annual initiatives is the Faces of Mental Illness campaign, a national education campaign that operates in conjunction with Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW). MIAW will reach more Canadians than ever before through their annual campaigns. We hope you join the conversation and help put an end to the stigma associated with mental illness.
