Mental Illness Awareness Week is October 4-10
Mental Illness Awareness Week is October 4-10. Since 1990, when Congress officially established the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), advocates have used this time to educate the public about mental illnesses. The theme of this year’s Mental Illness Awareness Week is, “What People with Mental Illness Want You to Know.” And what do they want you to know and why is this important?
When we hear people’s stories, we better understand the impact of mental illnesses on an individual and their family. We understand the difficulty people face obtaining care and treatment in a timely way. We understand the discrimination people face when their insurance won’t cover the treatment they need, their employer doesn’t understand the accommodations needed or the school doesn’t understand how to support a young person.
