Raising awareness for the importance of men’s mental health
The Hi Dad Foundation was formed in 2022 as an outcome of Father's Day on the Hill, a non-partisan initiative founded five years ago by Member of Parliament Matt Jeneroux. The event was hosted in partnership with MPs Majid Jowhari and Gord Johns as a way of highlighting the importance of the mental health of new fathers. Over the years, the initiative has evolved to incorporate awareness around mental health for all men and boys, no matter age, stage of life, or circumstance.
