York Mills Kindness Week 2019

Our Mission:



Our mission is to spread the transformational power of kindness through the York Mills community and beyond. Our goal is to improve mental health and well being for our students by teaching the correlation between compassion and mental well being.


The importance of being kind.

Kindness improves our quality of life in the workplace as well as in the community. It brings people together. Doing good for others feels good. Showing kindness to others is just as rewarding as receiving it from someone else.


Compassion and Mental Health

Humans are social, and compassion is a large portion that is left missing from our daily lives. We seek to educate our students on the benefits compassion has on both giving, and receiving. Kindness is linked to happiness and contentment, on both mental and physiological levels, and promotes individuals to feel more interconnected with others. Kindness, holds the potential to change the stigma around mental health, and creating a world with less barriers and more opportunities.
