National Child and Youth Mental Health Day - May 7, 2010

Join Our Community Celebration!

An opportunity for youth, families and staff to participate in a community mental health and addictions awareness event. Participants will have the opportunity to attend information sessions, speak to our knowledgeable staff and representatives from our community partners as well as participate in discussion panels. The purpose of this event is to educate and create awareness about mental illness and addictions so that we may reduce the stigma associated with these illnesses.

Mental health challenges affect 20% of Canadian Children and Youth... that is over 2 million children and adolescents in Canada. Mental health problems can happen to any young person regardless of age or circumstance.

To register please contact Nicole Fraughton (470-3907) or
