CMHA Toronto joins individuals and organizations across the country to celebrate National Seniors Day today.
National Seniors Day is an important time to celebrate the valuable contributions older adults make in communities across Ontario and reflect on the way they are supported. CMHA Toronto is dedicated to supporting the well-being of all people throughout their lives, including an important focus on older people. Seniors are often undertreated for mental health problems, due to symptoms of mental health issues being mistaken for other conditions, discrimination and stigma, service availability, and physical and financial challenges.
CMHA Toronto offers various social support programs for older adults who self-identify as having personal experiences with their mental health and would like to connect with a community of their peers. View our social support programs, here.
Members of the public are encouraged to share their stories and use the #NationalSeniorsDay hashtag on social media.
