Mental Illness Awareness Week is a national campaign designed to focus on the reality of mental illness.

It was started 25 years ago by Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada, according to the CAMIMH website.

The primary goal of this campaign is to provide mental health care and create awareness about the importance of mental well-being.

In any given year, one in every five Canadians experience a mental health or addition problem, according to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

St. Clair College says it’s doing its best to tackle mental illness as well. There are student counselling services available to help with mental illness and stress.

St. Clair also has a magazine called Student Health 101, which offers tips to have a happy and healthy life by meditating, exercising and keeping a peaceful mindset.

To book an appointment with St. Clair college counsellor, you can call (519) 972-2727 ext. 4226 or email [email protected]
