Children’s Mental Health Week


 May 6–12, 2024

Children’s Mental Health Week is an initiative of Children’s Mental Health Ontario that takes place alongside Mental Health Week during the first week of May each year. It is a time for communities, families, and friends to come together to recognize the importance of the mental health and well-being needs of young people.

Join us from May 6 to 12, 2024, to celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week and National Child and Youth Mental Health Day on May 7. We celebrate the resilience and dedication of mental health workers, families, and communities dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment for children and youth experiencing mental health challenges.

Visit the Family Care Centre to find peer support, resources, and more!

“This Children’s Mental Health Week, we encourage all Ontarians to have bold and compassionate conversations about young people’s mental health, which helps to destigmatize mental health challenges and to raise awareness of the importance of families being able to access community-based mental health care more easily, Families must not be left to face these challenges alone.”
