This year the theme is, mental health is a universal human right.  World Mental Health Day is about raising awareness of mental health and driving positive change for everyone’s mental health.  It is also a chance to talk about mental health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to get help if you are struggling.

Both the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day take place on September 30.

Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”.  The orange shirt is a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations.

On September 30, we encourage all Canadians to wear orange to honour the thousands of Survivors of residential schools.
