May 7-National Child and Youth Mental Health Day

How You Can Help Improve Mental Health Resources For Your Family

On May 7th youth, parents, caregivers, professionals, service providers and those interested in child and youth mental health are invited to help define what Family Smart could mean to our Nation. Participate to help us define the outcomes that are meaningful to families and how Family Smart can help us reach those outcomes.

Sites across Canada will be connected during parts of the day through webcasting and the dialogue across provinces and territories will be captured using Graphic Recording.

We have lots of activities planned to keep you engaged (and fed) during your experience, but understand that it may be difficult to be on location the entire time. We encourage you to come for as long as you can, and would love to collect your input.

Halifax, NS -- Co-hosted by the Sun Life Financial Chair in Adolescent Mental Health and the IWK Mental Health and Addictions. Location: IWK Health Centre, Parker Reception Room, 1-7pm ( or call 470-8087)

What is Family Smart?

Family Smart is the first initiative of the Institute of Families. The hope is for 'Family Smart' to become an recognized identifier (like Health Check), used to identify and endorse programs, practices, policies, services and research that families have identified as meaningful and helpful to them.
