Survey says…

According to the 2016 YMCA Healthy Kids Survey, parents are most concerned about their children’s mental and emotional health. We surveyed parents across Canada with children between the ages of 0 and 18. When it comes to their children’s healthy development, parents are most concerned about their children’s mental/emotional health (50%) followed by physical (28%) and social health (22%). Time and money are the main barriers holding Canadian parents back from leading healthy, active lifestyles with their family.

As a YMCA, our mission is to improve the health and well-being of Canadians, in body, mind and spirit. You may not think the YMCA can help improve mental health, but visit us any day and you`ll see people connecting with others, building a support network and working together to reach their health goals. Our research has shown that there are many positive effects of belonging to the YMCA – people tell us they feel less alone, find it easier to make friends, and have better health. Visit us to see for yourself!
