Canada's Children's Hospital Foundations (CCHF) in partnership with the Sobey Foundation and Sobeys Inc., announced the second annual campaign to support the A Family of Support: Child & Youth Mental Health Initiative. The new campaign will span from September 16 to 30, 2021, and encourages Canadians to donate to the initiative's annual fundraising campaign at Empire and Sobeys Inc. retail locations.
"Clinicians have said the past year has been especially difficult for children and youth, and their families. Now more than ever, we need to prioritize child and youth mental health and help kids while they're still kids, giving them the best possible chance to thrive," said Mark Hierlihy, President & CEO of Canada's Children's Hospital Foundations. "Support for child and youth mental health demonstrates timely leadership and we are proud to embark on this year's fundraising campaign in partnership with the Sobey Foundation and Sobeys Inc. as we continue to address the urgent local needs for earlier interventions and better access to mental health care."
