CMHA celebrates Seniors Month

CMHA celebrates Seniors Month

CMHA York South Simcoe joins individuals and organizations across the province to celebrate Seniors Month in June.

Seniors’ Month 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 [BRANCH] is dedicated to supporting the well-being of all people throughout their lives, including an important focus on older people. One in four Canadian seniors currently live with a mental health issue. In addition, 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.
