Exciting to see so many of our favourite landmarks across the Niagara Region shining green in support of Childrens' Mental Health Awareness Week. The colour green is used to help raise public awareness and show support to children, youth and families dealing with mental health issues. Green signifies new life, new growth and new beginnings.
Pathstone responds to the Netflix series '13 Reasons Why' with a statement and an interview in the local newspaper.
Pathstone CEO, Shaun Baylis was quoted in the Niagara this Week article in response to questions surrounding the Netflix series. Baylis stated "while it has led to discussion about bullying, sexual assault, victim blaming and other issues, it hasn't necessarily been done in the healthiest way." He added, "young people are already watching the show, and parents, should watch it with them or at least open a dialogue, asking if they've ever had feelings of anxiety"

This week is about increasing awareness of the signs of child and youth mental health problems, decreasing stigma, understanding that help is available and "Treatment Works".
Keep an eye out for landmarks across the Niagara Region that will shine green to raise awareness of this week (Niagara Falls, Peace Bridge, Skylon Tower, Welland Bridge, Pelham arches)
Why green? Today we use green to signify new life, new growth and new beginnings.
Wear green coloured clothing or a green ribbon to help raise public awareness and show support to children, youth and families dealing with mental health issues.
