YMCA releases mental health song

YMCA Canada has begun a promotion for its free youth mental health program Y Mind. The promotion makes use of a new rendition of the song “Y.M.C.A.” performed by musical group Walk off the Earth. The song and its accompanying online video features new lyrics focusing on mental health.

“We've seen how music is so connected to emotions, for us and our fans, so we were honoured to take on the challenge of reinventing such an iconic song and give new meaning to its enduring lyrics,” said Sarah Blackwood of Walk off the Earth. “When we took a look at the original lyrics, it was staggering how a message about the YMCA from 45 years ago is just as relevant and pointed today, but now we're sharing that message with a focus on mental health tied to Y Mind.”
