Children’s Mental Health Week

Last updated on April 21st, 2021 at 02:03 am

Ontarians celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week on the first week of May each year, recognising how important it is to prioritise our children’s mental health and doing everything we can to create an environment that supports it!

Around since at least 2013, CMHW reflects the growing awareness that our children need us to pay attention as they navigate a world that only grows more complex with every passing day.

To show my commitment to children’s mental health and fostering a healthy environment for my kids’ future, I’ve partnered with Children’s Mental Health Ontario to develop content throughout Children’s Mental Health Week that covers various aspects of the cause, from the families impacted by mental health issues to the people who’ve worked on the system’s front lines.

I hope we can all learn something from these stories! And don’t forget to join the #kidscantwait movement if you want to show your support—https://www.cmho.org/stay-informed!
