On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, Albertans are invited to take part in Hats On! For Mental Health and wear a hat to raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health. Schools can participate by encouraging students and staff to wear hats and engaging in conversations focused on understanding mental health and the importance of removing the stigma associated with mental illness.
You can learn more about Hats On! For Mental Health by visiting canwetalk.ca, a website sponsored by the Alberta Teachers’ Association and the Canadian Mental Health Association that includes a variety of mental health resources for schools.
Mental Health Awareness Week (May 1-8)
The focus on mental health promotion continues throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, which is being held this year from May 1-8. Mentally healthy students are resilient and better able to learn, achieve success and build healthy relationships.
