What is The Kindness Project?

The Kindness Project is a week-long initiative powered by CMHA North Bay and District Mental Health Week, but you have the power to make our communities kinder all year long!

Together, we will:

  • Encourage community members to engage in acts of kindness towards one another
  • Raise awareness about the positive impact of small acts of kindness on our mental health and overall well-being (it’s scientifically proven!)
  • Create a sense of interconnectedness and support within the community

Kindness Counts –
It’s Scientifically Proven

Science shows that when we are kind to others, both parties experience real and tangible benefits. Kindness lowers stress, releases happy chemicals in our brains, and helps build stronger communities.

So let’s start sharing kindness:

For Yourself

For a Friend or Family Member

For A Charity

As A Random Act of Kindness
