Mental Illness Awareness Week, Oct. 6-12, 2013
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
Summary: In recognition of NAMI’s efforts to raise mental illness awareness, Congress designated the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week. To take full advantage of this week and spread the word about mental illness, NAMI has prepared a complete range of suggestions and ideas including a list of potential activities, ways for individuals to educate themselves about mental illness, and a fully developed Public Relations and Marketing Toolkit. Clubhouse International recognizes the work of NAMI affiliates and all mental health programs across the United States, which work tirelessly to raise awareness about mental illness.
