Make Some Noise for Mental Health

Make Some Noise for Mental Health is an initiative that was originated by the SAIT Trojans in the ACAC to promote mental health awareness on campuses. SAIT was honoured with the 2015 CCAA Community Service Award for the campaign, which was then expanded to include all ACAC members in 2016. 

The CCAA would like to encourage its members across the country to join in this mental health awareness campaign to break the stigma surrounding mental health on campus. The awareness campaign is intended to encourage conversation and open mindedness and better promote resources and support available on campus and in the local area.

The campaign allows for maximum flexibility for members to engage in the campaign in the manner and to the degree that they deem appropriate on any date(s) between January 16 & February 12, 2017.

With assistance from the ACAC, the CCAA has created a guide and basic promotional materials (logos, posters, etc.) to assist members in launching a campaign on their campus.

The campaign materials are available to download here in the CCAA's Promotional Materials Dropbox Account.

 

Bell Let's Talk Day

The CCAA also encourages its members to be part of the loudest Thunderclap in Canada on Bell Let’s Talk Day! On January 25th, Thunderclap will blast out a timed and simultaneous Bell Let’s Talk message on Twitter and Facebook from everyone registered, creating a wave of attention for Canadian mental health and student-athletes across the country.

It’s easy to get involved. All you have to do is spread the word by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter links at this Bell Let's Talk webpage and Thunderclap will do the rest.
