Parents/Guardians invited to free webinar: Post-pandemic Mental Health

Parents/guardians are invited to join a free webinar in November on post-pandemic mental health.

Join Kevin Cameron as he shares information and strategies relating to post-pandemic mental health for adults and children.

A survey by CMHA Ontario showed that nearly half (48 per cent) of Ontarians say their mental health has worsened over the past two years. Juggling work, home and caregiving responsibilities resulted in moderate to high levels of stress for parents during the course of the pandemic and stress levels continue to be pushed.

How can we focus on our mental health to improve the wellbeing of our children and ourselves? Following the presentation, there will be opportunities to ask questions.
