TOGETHER, WE CAN GET KIDS THE HELP THEY NEED.
It takes a family to support child & youth mental health. Now more than ever.
WE ARE A CANADA-WIDE FAMILY OF SUPPORT, FUNDING PROGRAMS THAT HELP MORE KIDS ACCESS MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT EARLY.
Family of Support is a ground-breaking initiative, funding innovative mental health programs to help kids while they're still kids, giving them the best possible chance to thrive.
CANADA’S CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATIONS
We’ve partnered with 13 local children’s hospital foundations across the country to fund and implement a diverse range of innovative child and youth mental health programs. These programs are working to decrease stigma, help more children and youth get the mental health support they need, while strengthening families. Each program has a regional focus addressing urgent needs within the communities they serve.
HOW TO DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
In-store September 1st to 21
Donations can be made at any of the stores listed below between September 1st to 21. Plus, you can double your impact by visiting your local store on September 10 or 11, when we’ll match your donation up to $10K*. All funds raised will stay local and will directly support child and youth mental health programs at the 13 local children’s hospital foundations.
The 2022 campaign is now finished in the other regions
KIDS HELP PHONE
Our newest partnership with Kids Help Phone was announced in May, 2022 and supports two mental health programs designed with and for communities across Canada: RiseUp, an e-mental health support service for Black youth, and Finding Hope, an action plan to support Indigenous youth. These initiatives help connect equity-deserving youth across Canada to free, bilingual, 2/4 mental health services, like professional counselling, crisis response and online resources, as well as community-based engagement.
