68th Annual Mental Health Week

The 68th Annual Mental Health Week will be taking place from May 6–12, 2019. For Mouvement Santé mentale Québec, the Quebec branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, it is an opportunity to launch an annual campaign promoting mental health.

The focus of the 2019–2020 campaign is protective factors in mental health, with the theme “Découvrir c’est voir autrement” [“Discovery Lies in Seeing The World Differently”] Curiosity is the spice of life and is what makes us enjoy school and work, as well as our social relationships. Taking the time to dig beneath the surface opens us up to other people and their strengths, and helps us develop a respect for difference. The Movement invites you to the Campaign Launch at Concordia University on May 11, 2019, from 10 am to 5 pm. In collaboration with the Association des art-thérapeutes du Québec, the day will include two roundtables, an urban photography activity, a library of “human books,” and booths presenting creative therapies through the arts.
