October 6-12

Mental Illness Awareness Week

Held each year during the first full week of October, Mental Illness Awareness Week consists of grassroots observances to promote broader public awareness and understanding of serious mental illness, eliminate stigma, and build support for treatment and recovery. Local events are diverse, including, for example, NAMIWalks, candlelight vigils or film series. It is a good time for media to run stories about depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other conditions as well as the experiences of individuals and families.
