Did you know October 1st, 2017 to October 7th is Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW)?
MIAW is an annual national public education campaign coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health!
This year’s MIAW encourages Canadians to join the conversation about mental illness online using the hashtag #miaw17. As mental illness affects more than six million people across the country, the campaign encourages Canadians to share personal stories and engage in a discussion regarding the need for increased access to mental health services for all Canadians.
As part of MIAW, Little Voice’s author wanted to share her story with anxiety.
