Make a Statement
  • Wear green. Be creative; don’t just limit this to your everyday wardrobe. Wear green shoelaces, a green suit, dye your hair green or paint your fingernails.
  • Initiate a “Wear Green Day.” Encourage your workplace and friends to pick a day during the month to wear green to spread the word about Mental Illness Awareness Week.
  • Wear a green ribbon. Pin it on your shirt or on your bag or backpack.
  • Learn about new research, advances in treatments and coping strategies for living with mental illness and share what you find out with your family and friends. There might even be some simple ideas that you can pass along that can be incorporated into an everyday routine.
  • Share your story of hope on You Are Not Alone.
  • Participate in a NAMIWalk—and wear green!
  • Share your photos of your activities using #MIAW on twitter or facebook or submit your pictures to YANA (You are not Alone) or on our Facebook page.
Mental Illness Awareness Week is Oct 5 – 11, 2014!
