Mental Health Empowerment Day
October 27
Mental Health Empowerment Day is designed to empower all those who work or live with children and youth who are dealing with mental health issues, one of the most pervasive issues in the world today. The goal of MHED is to provide concrete tools for participants in our schools, community institutions and youth programs who work daily with this population. Each of these frontline workers can play an active role in making the lives of our young people better. We also speak directly to parents, and help them to better understand how best to support their children. Through Mental Health Empowerment Day, we want to reduce stigma, provide a forum for discussion and give tools for action.

Holocaust Education Week
November 3-10
Welcome to Holocause Education Week (HEW)! With so much social, cultural and political turmoil occurring globally, we find ourselves discussing the relationship between the Holocaust and what is happening around us today. At the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre, we recognize that recent events, both globally and in our own backyard, demonstrate a frightening rise of antisemitism. In response, this year’s Holocaust Education Week will examine the Holocaust from multiple contemporary perspectives, illuminating its relevance to all Canadians. During HEW and year-round, we are committed to presenting educational experiences for adults, students and youth across the GTA that inspire meaningful dialogue about the dangers of hate.
