COVID-19 Resources

As we continue to live in and ever-changing and new world from the COVID-19 Pandemic, our mental health could be taking a toll. We may feel more lonely or anxious during the pandemic. Help is always around us though no matter what.

Social Media Toolkits

We are committed to raising awareness and ending the stigma around mental health disorders in youth and mental health in general. We encourage you to access our social media toolkits where you can save and report some slides that help to raise awareness and push for change to improve the mental health of youth now!

In any given year, 1 in 5 Canadians experiences a mental illness or substance abuse problem. Not everyone is able to access resources for help nor get the help they need if they can access these resources. 

An estimated 75% of youth with a mental health disorder are not able to access specialized treatment services and only about half of Canadians experiencing a major depressive episode (depression) have the opportunity to receive potentially adequate care for it.

Information Packages and Cards

We are proud to provide information packages about different mental health disorders and conditions as well as small information cards on the topic of youth mental health. To access these, click below!
