Have That Talk - Ottawa Public Health Mental Health Video Campaign

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Ottawa Public Health’s “have THAT talk” mental health video campaign was created to give parents more information about mental health. The videos aim to give parents the knowledge and resources they need to talk about mental health with their child or teen. The program was launched on Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 28, 2014.

Mental health problems affect 1 in 5 Canadians. Also, 75% of all of these problems start before the age of 24 years. Parents are encouraged to watch these videos to learn how they can have that talk about mental health with their child or teen. Please share these videos through Facebook, Twitter, or email. By talking about mental health openly, you can help your child become a healthy and resilient adult.
