This week, kids' mental health is in the spotlight as Children's Mental Health Awareness Week begins, bringing attention to the well-being of the region's young population.
Pathstone Mental Health marked the start of the week by rolling out a calendar of events with daily stories, physical activities, and family fun.
The full calendar of events is available here.
The week will also feature a series of activities and information sessions on Pathstones Facebook page.
According to Pathstone, one in five children is impacted by a mental health challenge.
"At Pathstone we have seen a steep increase in clients citing pandemic-related issues being the root of their struggles," said a statement from the organization.
