On Our Sleeves was developed by Nationwide Children's Hospital and introduced on World Mental Health Awareness Day in October 2018. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds North Dakota had the country's largest increase in suicide rates - 57% - between 1999 and 2016. According to MentalHealth.gov, "our mental health affects how we think, feel and act". Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. "We're co-hosting this with the Canadian Mental Health Association, our adult partners, and we've done that for the past two years because mental health is across a lifespan, from birth to death, so working together and integrating services more and more helps all the families in our community that much more". "It really supports this government's agenda around connecting Ontarians, and making sure that it's a connected mental health and addiction strategy", she said.

In a statement to CBC, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care did not address any plans to match the previous funding, but said it "made a promise during the election to make mental health a priority".
