Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day

Along with our ReachOut campaign, for the second year in a row, we worked with Vancouver City Council and the Mayor’s Office to have the Tuesday of Men’s Health Week, June 13th, proclaimed “Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day.”

Vancouver joined 13 other Canadian cities, including Ottawa and Toronto, raising awareness of mental health among men.
