Quality relationships are critical to a child's mental wellness

Research shows that:

  • Up to 1 in 5 Canadian kids are affected by a mental health issue.
  • Fifty per cent of adults with mental wellness issues report that the problem started before 14 years of age.
  • Only 50 per cent of Canadian kids in grade 6 report a high level of emotional well-being. That number drops to 26 per cent by grade 10.
  • Youth mental disorders are ranked 2nd highest in hospital expenditure care in Canada
  • The presence of a strong parent/child relationship matters in 23 of 24 health behaviours for kids, including emotional wellness, making healthy choices, and positive social interactions.
  • We have developed a new public service message and infographic video series that will provide you with tips, suggestions and strategies to help support your child's mental well-being.
