“ Hats On For Awareness is an organization dedicated to raising awareness, understanding and widespread acceptance of mental illness and addiction with the goal of eradicating the stigma associated with mental health and addiction.”
Whether you have experienced the difficulties of mental illness first hand or have witnessed the struggles of families trying to cope, we hope you will support the Hats On for Awareness commitment to CAMH and its efforts to cultivate a stronger understanding and awareness of mental illness and addiction.
As a charitable organization, Hats On for Awareness is committed to raising awareness about mental illness to ensure those suffering seek out and find the treatment they need. In recent months, Hats On for Awareness has decided to focus its efforts on youth mental health. Reaching children early and educating them about the issues associated with mental illness and the importance of getting treatment is key to ensuring they live long and healthy lives. It is also critically important to raise awareness about mental illness with all youth and their guardians to curb the associated stigmas and encourage youth to support their friends in need.
