We’re donating $2 to Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO) for every online quote generated. The #Quote2Give campaign will run until we reach our goal of $25,000 raised or until December 31st 2015.

We encourage all members of Ontario’s education community to participate. Together we’ll raise awareness about kid’s mental health and the impact that it has on the classroom.

Did you know?

  • 1 in 5 kids in Ontario struggles with their mental health.
  • 75% of mental illnesses first occur in people aged 15 to 24.
  • Almost 1/3rd of students report having been bullied.
  • Young people with mental health disorders are at greater risk for dropping out of school.

Teachers Life will donate up to $25,000 to the CMHO Innovation Grants for leading school and community partnerships. CMHO, a non-profit association, represents and supports the providers of child and youth mental health treatment services throughout Ontario in partnership with its 90 member agencies. Many work directly with school boards and educators to coordinate the provision of mental health services.

As a fraternal benefits provider for educators and their families, our community encourages us to do more than just sell insurance. Doing more means partnering with leading organizations working to champion our future generations. We believe the CMHO mandate echoes the core values of those working in the education community.
