MARCH FOR YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH
Every year in the city of Hamilton, our biggest event will take place. A march across the city of Hamilton that is designed not only to raise awareness and break the stigma about youth mental health but is also designed to get people to do more about it and help the ones who are struggling. For more information on this years march, see below! Note that this page will continue to be updated as the event gets closer.
7 MAY 2022
The main goal of the March for Youth Mental Health will be to raise awareness about youth mental health disorders when gathering people together to work together to end the stigma around mental health disorders in youth. The March for Youth Mental Health will also work to push government bodies to do more in their support for providing resources for the youth who need it and create policies that will help youth and their mental health for years to come.
