With months of quarantine experience under our belts, the routine and look of our daily lives has been changed entirely. Due to social distancing, we are craving family time and have pushed ourselves to stay connected in as many ways as possible with our friends and communities.
Whether you’re a frontliner working long hours, a working mom taking care of your kids while juggling conference calls or a child at home worried and wondering when you’ll be able to meet your friends again, it’s clear that our minds are handling a different level of stress recently.
To proudly acknowledge how we’ve all been coping in these times, we’re celebrating two significant occasions of the mind – Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month and Child & Youth Mental Health Day.
Both occasions remind us of the support children’s hospitals provide in maintaining the mental well-being of children all across Canada.
Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba takes these two topics to heart, and is on the frontlines of children’s mental health and Neurofibromatosis research to help kids live better.
