The 2020 edition of Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day in Canada is being observed on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.
Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of how signs and symptoms of mental health conditions may present themselves differently in men, and to normalize conversations about mental health issues to reduce the stigma that often prevents men from seeking help. Participants are encouraged to wear bright- or lime-green coloured articles of clothing on that day, and use the #MensMHday hashtag on social media, to show their support.
First proclaimed in the City of Ottawa in 2014, this awareness day is held annually on the Tuesday immediately preceding Father’s Day, during International Men’s Health Week. Check out the backstory on #MensMHday and how it came to light.
You are of course encouraged to promote this initiative via social media, inviting your Friends, Followers and Contacts to do the same.
For promotional and tracking purposes, please use #MensMHday in your tweets/posts regarding Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day, or on men’s mental health in general.
Please contact founder Jean-François Claude through this website if you wish to get involved or require more information. Thank you!
