Symbol of Mind

The Butterfly

The butterfly is a symbolic expression of mind. The mind is beautiful as same as the butterfly. At the same time, it can be harmed by your little mistake, so the butterfly does. We, CAN MH Lanka use the butterfly symbol as our mental health promotion campaign symbol since 2013. Butterfly campaign takes place in October every year. We go to the general public, political leaders, school children, and government and private sector employees with the butterfly and try to make them aware of mental health and disability. We bring a collection box with us in case we have a little donation from them.
