Our Kid’s Mental Health

The following descriptions and videos are located on the YouTube channel of the Canadian Paediatric Society. Please take a moment to view the 2 videos as they contain current and valuable information about the different things that impact mental health.

Taking care of our mental health is just as important as having a healthy body. As a parent, you play an important role in your children’s mental health. You can promote good mental health by the things you say and do, and through the environment you create at home.

Parents and caregivers play a big role in fostering their child’s self-esteem. Self-esteem is how people feel about themselves, both inside and out. People with good self-esteem generally have a positive outlook, accept themselves and feel confident. Children need to feel loved and accepted to build self-esteem.
