COMMUNITY CONFERENCE HONORING MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK
In 1990, the U.S. Congress established the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) in recognition of NAMI's efforts to raise mental illness awareness. Since 1990, mental health advocates across the country have joined together during the first full week of October in sponsoring many kinds of activities. The hope is participants will go forth changing attitudes and lives.
