Children’s Mental Health Week

From May 6 to 12, 2024, The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) will observe Children’s Mental Health Week (CMHW). If you need some inspiration, check out our Infographic to help guide the conversations and how to focus on the many ways we can promote well being in our schools!

"A Call to Be Kind- Because Compassion Connects Us All" is this years theme with the Canadian Mental Health Association. This theme underscores the profound impact of compassion in fostering connections among us all.

At TDSB, we aim to shine a spotlight on the incredible efforts of all staff and happenings within TDSB schools, while fostering discussions aimed at dismantling mental health stigmas, nurturing healing through compassion, and championing daily well-being practices for children and youth across all TDSB schools.

Central to our approach is equity. We recognize the pivotal role that identity-affirming support plays in promoting mental health and well being. Therefore, we are committed to providing resources and tools from an anti-oppressive and anti-racist perspective, prioritizing supports for all students from intersecting social identities, parents, caregivers, and guardians.

If your school is utilizing the resources we have provided or organizing activities for this week, we encourage you to share your stories on social media using the hashtags:

  • #tdsbcmhw2024
  • #compassionconnects

Additionally, please reach out to your child's school to learn more about local Children's Mental Health Week events.
