Balancing Our Minds Oceanside BC
Wed, May 3, 2017, 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM PDT
We are excited to be one of the five communities across BC that will be hosting a Balancing Our Minds Youth Summit.
This is a FREE, one-day event for high school age youth to learn about mental health, engage in fun activities and participate in thoughtful dialogue. Lunch will be provided.
Launched in Vancouver in 2013, the summit attracts over 1500 youth annually. With support from BC Children's Hospital's Health Literacy Team and the Canucks for Kids Fund, we are proud to host this event in our community.
The summit builds awareness of mental health and substance use, decreases stigma, connects with youth with mental health resources and promotes mental wellness in our schools and communities.Participants will hear youth speakers share their personal experiences, present ideas on how to support someone who may be facing mental helath challenges and learn how to be a champion of mental wellness in their school community.
Together, with support of passionate youth, school professionals and community members, we can encourage youth to make mental wellness a priority-both of themseleves and for others. We will share more details as we continue to plan this event in our community. For More information about Balancing Our Minds, please visit : http://bom.keltymentalhealth.ca/
