 May 7, 2014

On May 7, 2014, Albertans are invited to wear a hat to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health. Participating schools will relax their hat rules and encourage students and teachers to build understanding by wearing hats to school. Students will also participate in a coordinated lesson on understanding mental health and the importance of removing the stigma associated with mental illnesses.

Teachers are encouraged to use these short lesson plans in their classes on May 7.

If your school plans to participate in the Hats On! For Mental Health Day this year, please let us know by sending us this registration form.

Posters for this year's event are available for download here.
