What is Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW)? MIAW is an annual observance sponsored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness to focus attention on the high incidence of mental illness in America. The purpose of the observance is to educate the public and reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

Please join students and faculty in the Social Work Department’s 9th annual celebration honoring National Mental Illness Awareness Week. This event was coordinated by social work graduate students enrolled in the course, Human Behavior and the Social Environment III (HBSE III). We are hosting a number of events that are free and open to the university community. For additional information, please contact Sharon Murphy at 862-3826 or at
