"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”. Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars who influence others to listen themselves."

MIAW2017 Continued with Samantha Clusiau-Lawlor

As part of Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), we wanted to continue to answer the Campaign’s call to action to share our stories in support of mental health!

From public speaking, going to a new school, or even dealing with a death in the family, I often struggled silently to cope with my emotions. This struggle eventually transformed into a difficult journey with my own body image and food.

Mental Illness Awareness Week 2017

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.
