Communities across Ontario are encouraged to join what is becoming a large and growing green movement for Mental Health Week.

It’s confirmed that buildings and iconic landmarks in cities such as Hamilton, Oakville, Burlington and Toronto will be lit green for the 65th annual Mental Health Week May 2 to 8.

Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) branches urge more businesses and organizations across Ontario to partner in this project. Visit www.greenformentalhealth.ca for more information and an ongoing list of illuminated buildings.

CN Tower MHW 2015Individuals can also take part by wearing green or taking pictures near numerous landmarks illuminated green throughout the province and sharing them on social media using the hashtag #GETLOUD.

For several years, CMHA Ontario has managed to secure lighting of a few landmarks, including CN Tower and Niagara Falls. But this year’s initiative has received a big boost from Ted Michaels, on-air personality and host of the award-winning series, Wellness Wednesdays, on Hamilton radio station AM900 CHML. With AM900 CHML leading the charge, Michaels’ has teamed up with the Burlington Community Foundation (BCF) and CMHA branches in Hamilton and Halton. Together, they’re getting more than 25 local landmarks lit green.
