November 2, 2012 - Children's Mental Health is a pillar of RBC's community giving. So they partnered with Lutherwood to produce a five part mini video series to introduce the topic of Children's Mental Health.
Originally intended as a tool to inform and engage their more than 3,000 employees across Ontario South West in the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project, RBC Foundation created a series of short videos using Lutherwood's experts. They filmed and produced five short videos and posted one each day of the week to promote children's mental health in early October, 2012.
The 3-4 minute videos were very successful and helped to:
- introduce the topic of children's mental health
- help parents identify common symptoms of mental health problems
- identify resources available to parents for support
- help reduce the stigma around children's mental health
We encourage you to view them:
Many thanks to RBC for their support of children's mental health, Lutherwood and our community.
"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."
