Mental Health Week is May 3 – 9, 2021
Mental Health Week is an annual national event that takes place during the first week of May. Too often, stigma and discrimination surrounding this issue creates barriers for those seeking the support and care they need. 
Mental health and mental illness are a big part of health and safety in the workplace and beyond. CUPE members can access tools, resources and training to help members identify psychological hazards. We encourage you to explore these resources by visiting this link:
