On Tuesday November 18, in Toronto, every mind will be celebrated!

Our blog today is an invitation to our readers who live in the Greater Toronto Area to attend this celebratory breakfast.

Her Excellency Sharon Johnston will discuss the impact mental health has on our society. Her keynote address, titled Pathways to Resiliency, will draw on personal experience, the importance of speaking out and fighting the stigma associated with mental illness.

This celebration of every mind is a breakfast to support the Psychology Foundation of Canada’s programs to help children become confident and productive adults.

Why is Her Ladyship (that would be me!) promoting this event? Because …

In Canada, one out of every five children shows signs of an emotional or behavioural problem. One in four children enter adult life with significant emotional, behavioural, academic or social problems. Bullying from the school yard to the boardroom is an increasingly worrisome occurrence. And after accidents, suicide is the most frequent cause of death among young people in Canada. This is not as it should be.
