Child and Youth Mental Health Day
May 7, 2016
This national awareness day, led by the Institute of Families in cooperation with partners across the country, seeks to help create public awareness and acknowledgement of the thousands of children, youth and families needing mental health support and care across Canada.
Did you know that 10-20% of Canadian youth are affected by a mental illness or disorder – the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide? Not only that, but 1 in 5 of those youth suffering from mental health conditions don’t receive the treatment they need. Find youth-specific resources here.
