Stamp out mental illness

Several years ago when Vancouver Archbishop Raymond Roussin made public the fact that he was dealing with depression, it awakened a lot of people to the insidiousness of this disease. Now Canada Post is developing a new mental health stamp, and the public is getting involved big time.

Yesterday was the deadline for public submissions. Canada Post will whittle the hundreds of entries down to 20 semi-finalists, from which five designs will be chosen by the public. Voting will take place from Feb. 14 to March 14. The winning design will be announced in April.

You can look at the gallery of submissions here.
