2021 Get Your Mental Health in Motion - a week to be well

Date: May 03, 2021 - May 09, 2021

Location: virtual event

This year has not been easy. In the wake of the pandemic, supporting the mental wellbeing of our community is critical. During Mental Health Week, May 3rd - May 9th, we are hosting “Get Your Mental Health in Motion – A Week to be Well." This is a week for you, offering mindfulness, wellness, music, and physical activities to promote mental wellbeing for the entire family. On May 9th, the final day of Mental Health Week there will be a Choose Your Own Adventure Fundraiser supporting child and youth mental health. Participate in the activities throughout the week, and then choose your own adventure on May 9th: walk, run, yoga, kayak, wakeboard, paddleboard, bike, swim, jump rope.... the possibilities are endless. Your participation will help children, youth and their families right here in our community. Children and youth are highly vulnerable to the impact of sustained stressors, warranting special consideration. 50% of youth are now at risk of a mental health crisis, due to the pandemic (CMHA, 2021). Our kids and grandkids are struggling, they need our help. All funds raised at this event will support the creation of a Child and Family Waiting Room at the Community Health Hub. This specialty waiting room will provide a space that is welcoming, comforting, and safe (physically, mentally and emotionally). The room is designed to reduce anxiety during visits, offer a space to play and have fun while waiting for an appointment, and increase receptivity to health care services. With your help, we will raise the $25,000 needed to make this vision for child and youth care possible. There are many ways you can help, you can become a sponsor or support the amazing sponsors we currently have on board, you can recruit friends and family to participate, you can ask your friends and neighbours for pledges, or you can make a donation. Every dollar brings us closer to this new space for children and families seeking mental health support. We hope you will join us. Please. Give. So no one gives up. For more information follow us on Facebook, contact Shelly Price at sprice@waypointcentre.ca, or visit our website waypointcentre.ca. May 3rd - May 9th, 2021 Get Your Mental Health in Motion - A Week to be Well No Registration Fee!

Location: Online Event

May 3-9, 2021 is Mental Health week. Please join the Our Health Team for their presentation on the impact of COVID-19 on multiple aspects of Mental Health and Addictions. The pandemic is eroding our mental well-being and the cost of this added psychological burden is high.

Moderator Keith Rose will explore these areas with three highly qualified local experts looking at the impact and ramifications of the pandemic as it affects all of us. The panel will unpack these complex issues and explore options for local support. There will also be an opportunity, both before and during the live program for you to submit questions.

This event will be LIVE at 7:30 PM and will be broadcast on all Rogers tv Simcoe County area channels.
