Mental Health Empowerment Day (MHED) is a movement dedicated to being part of the solution in the growing need for ending stigma, providing useful tools and building community in the field of child and youth mental health. Thus, our aim is to provide strategies, information and inspiration to the one in five children and young adults who suffer from a mental health challenge, as well as to their family members, teachers and camp counsellors. 

Created by a group of dedicated volunteers led by Leanne Matlow and in partnership with the Julia and Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education, MHED is making a difference in our community through an annual symposium and other special programs. The impact is already seen in the staff training and curricula in Jewish Day Schools and summer camps.

 In 2019, the MHED story was included in the Jewish Foundation’s Book of Life and a MHED fund with the Jewish Foundation makes it easier for those wishing to support MHED initiatives to do so.

Our annual symposium this year will feature noted author and leading expert on iGen: the Smartphone Generation, Jean Twenge, to be held at the Prosserman JCC on the Sherman Campus on Sunday, October 25th, 2020.
