The North Eastern Mental Health Week’s Planning Committee is launching Mental Health Week and Children’s Health week. At the launch will be representatives of the four school boards in the area, the Porcupine and Temiskaming Health Units as well as North Eastern Ontario Family and Children’s Services. It’s estimated that 1 in 5 Canadians will develop a mental illness at some point in their lives. The theme for this year is “Get Loud for Mental Health”. It’s important to have a strong united voice to share one vision and one campaign.
