Shine green for Mental Health Week

TrilliumCommunities across Ontario are encouraged to join what is becoming a large and growing initiative for Mental Health Week.

It’s confirmed that buildings and iconic landmarks in cities such as Hamilton, Oakville, Burlington and Toronto will be lit green for the 65th annual Mental Health Week May 2 to 8. Hamilton radio station AM900 CHML, in conjunction with Burlington Community Foundation, local CMHA branches, and community partners, are leading a charge to have 25 landmarks in its listening area lit green for Mental Health Week.

Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) branches urge more businesses and organizations across Ontario to partner in this project.

If you, your business or organization would like to illuminate your building as well, let us know and we’ll add it to the list below.

Individuals can also take part by wearing green or taking pictures near numerous landmarks illuminated green throughout the province and sharing them on social media using the hashtag #GETLOUD.

CMHA’s 65th annual Mental Health Week runs from May 2 to 8. A theme this year is “Get Loud.” It’s time to Get Loud and speak openly and honestly about mental health and the importance that positive mental health plays in our lives.

Check out the list below for the local buildings which have committed to being illuminated green for Mental Health Week.
