WHEREAS; Early intervention and treatment for child and youth mental health challenges is critical. All children, youth and their families in need of mental health supports should be able to access services when and where they need them; and
 
WHEREAS; The pandemic has increased the need for mental health care; and
 
WHEREAS; Raising awareness about the importance of child and youth mental health ensures that families know about the availability of services and how to access them and reduces the stigma associated with seeking support; and
 
WHEREAS; The colour green is used to celebrate child and youth mental health as it represents hope, growth, and transformation.
