Like the soles of our shoes, mental health is something that we cannot always see. It often goes unnoticed, and we are working to change that.
Follow @ShowYourSoleWR to get updates and find out how others in Waterloo Region are showing up.
You can be a part of the conversation by:
(1) Painting the soles of your shoes and placing them on your front porch or balcony.
(2) Cutting out the teal soles from THIS IMAGE and sticking them in your front window.
(3) Decorating your sidewalk or driveway with chalk sole drawings.

CMHA Waterloo Wellington, Carizon and Lutherwood have come together with a shared vision to raise funds for mental wellness and provide training, treatment, and community support to those in need.
DONATE TO SHOW YOUR SOLE
It is estimated that 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.
We believe that greater mental health awareness empowers individuals to pay the same attention to their mental health as they do their physical health.
The more resources and services that we can make available to those in need, the more we can ensure a more mentally healthy Waterloo Region.
Feel like putting your creative hat on? There’s never been a better opportunity to put some brilliant minds together to raise funds for Mental Health.
Whether you’re an inspired individual or a large corporation, there are ways to get involved.
