Children's Mental Health Week will be happening this year between May 7th to 13th. This is an important week where we are able to bring awareness to the prevalence of mental health issues throughout childhood, the need for government support and funding for community mental health centres, as well as to recognize all those working in and around the kids mental health industry for their hard work and dedication.
This year you will be able to expect the following from CMHO:
Social Media Campaigns:
Look back here in the coming weeks for our social media kits on how best to raise awareness for kids mental health. Throughout Children's Mental Health Week, we will be promoting awareness, information and more on our social media accounts throughout the week. We will also be hosting several Facebook Live sessions as well as a new twitter chat. Stay Tuned!
