About the campaign

Friends, clients, community,

Here at CMHA York Region and South Simcoe, we are excited to share our new social media campaign, #SignsofSupport. This project will feature members of our staff holding pictures filled with messages of encouragement for this difficult time.

Even though we have moved to a model of providing virtual care (except for essential services), we want you to know that we are here for you and we are thinking of you. 

We’d love for you to participate as well. Here are the steps to create your Sign of Support:

  1. Print out this template or use a blank sheet of paper, to write a message of hope or a tip for the public to help them through this difficult time. If you are using a blank sheet of paper, write #SignsofSupport on the bottom right hand corner.
  2. Take a picture of yourself holding the sign.
  3. Share it on social media and tag us @CMHAYork on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn. Feel free to share your message on as many channels as you wish. If you do not have social media, you can also send your photo to and we will post it for you.
  4. Encourage your friends to participate and keep checking back for more signs of support!

Let’s build each other up during this difficult time, by sharing positive messages of encouragement and connection on social media. Every photo matters!

Thanks for your support!
