Celebrating National Child and Youth Mental Health DayMay 7, 2019
National Child and Youth Mental Health Day is being marked in Canada on May 7.
In honour of the day, the Children’s Health Policy Centre has timed the release of the 50th issue of its Quarterly publication about children’s mental health research. This celebratory edition is titled Celebrating children’s mental health: 50 lessons learned.
The purpose of the issue is to present effective interventions and all the “good news” we know about how to safeguard children’s mental health.
National Child and Youth Mental Health Day was started in 2007 by the Vancouver-based Institute of Families for Child & Youth Mental Health. It is intended to create awareness and acknowledgement of the thousands of children, youth, and families needing mental health support and care across Canada.
