People are raising awareness all over the world this week to celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week. Point in Time Director, Marg Cox says the stigma surrounding mental health is one reason people won’t seek help, but that’s something they’re trying to change.

Point in Time works with a number of organizations in Haliburton County, including the school board. You can go to their website to find out more.
