June 10, 2024, will be the 4th annual Action Anxiety Day!

What is Action Anxiety Day?

We founded Action Anxiety Day (AAD) as a national awareness and education day to help people learn about anxiety, reduce stigma, create awareness of our evidence-based resources, and raise funds to support our free programs.

Every year on June 10th, we ask Canadians to join the movement by getting loud about anxiety and participating in spreading anxiety awareness and education.

AAD helps us raise awareness, dispel common anxiety myths, and underscore the importance of prioritizing mental health in our society.

One of our hashtags for AAD is #ACTonAnxiety. What does it mean to ACT?

Awareness – Raise awareness of anxiety and our trusted, evidence-based resources. 

Colours – Wear blue and orange on June 10 to show support!

Talking – Tell your anxiety stories and encourage others to share. Let’s break the stigma together!



Your gift will support improving the mental health of those struggling with anxiety.
