Children's Mental Health Week (May 2-6)

Lutherwood has launched two initiatives as part of this year's awareness building efforts for Children's Mental Health Week.

Helping Your Teen Cope Seminar

On Thursday May 5, Lutherwood is holding its third of four free children's mental health seminars at St Benedict's Catholic Secondary School Lecture Hall, starting at 7:00. This seminar helps parents understand the teenage stage of life and offers effective parenting strategies to enhance development and manage difficult issues. Go to our Speakers' Series webpage for more information.

Radio Advertisements

Working with partners to break down the stigma of mental health is important. This year, kidsLINK and Lutherwood teamed up to produce two radio advertisements promoting Children's Mental Health Week. Sofia Hostetler and Bekah Dueck provided writing and two of the voices featured in the spots. The ads will air three times a day on CHYM FM, KIX FM, and 570 NEWS during Children's Mental Health Week.

"I focus on children and youth because they don't have the experience to cope with life's challenges that the rest of us do. They are our future, and I think it is important that we support them to keep their hopes and dreams alive."
