Mental Health Matters Day (2015)

See what others have had to say on why mental health matters...

Mental health matters because if we talked about mental health years ago let we do today I might still have my love ones with me. I'm glad we see mental heath today as important as physical health.
- Taylor Abbott

Mental Health Matters Day will be held on Wednesday, March 25 at all CNA campuses. An initiative of the College of the North Atlantic Student Union (CNASU), the goal of Mental Health Matters is to bring the entire college together in support of something faced by many students – mental illness.

Now is your chance to affect change!

The stigma against mental illness won’t erase itself. Become part of the solution and help ensure every CNA student feels comfortable in their classroom with no stigma or negativity.

On March 25, awareness activities will be held at each campus. Join us in helping anyone with a mental health issue feel safe and secure in speaking out – they don't have to wage the war alone.
