Weston Family Foundation donates $3 million to the Canadian Mental Health Association to support the mental health of youth and underserved populations
Toronto, ON. October 13, 2021 – The Weston Family Foundation is donating $3 million to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to expand access to BounceBack, a free, guided mental health self-help program. The funding will extend the program for an additional three years and help BounceBack better meet the specific needs of youth and underserved groups, especially Indigenous peoples, Black people, people of colour and people who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+. The mental health of these groups has had a measurable decline during the COVID-19 pandemic.
