Description

What is it, exactly?

United Voices: Immigrant Youth Wellness Summit presented by HEADSTRONG is the first summit of its kind in Canada. Youth from all backgrounds between the ages 12 and 20 are invited to register to take part in a fun day including stories from inspirational immigrant speakers, interactive break-out sessions, great food and more, while learning how to battle the stigma surrounding mental health.

Why would I do this?

You're a youth who wants to take action on the stigma surrounding mental health! Learn the skills and gain the confidence to become an advocate for mental health and spark change in your community. Whether you are an immigrant, the child of immigrants, or just want to share your voice, this completely free event will be a day for everyone to come together to end the stigma.

Who can attend?

This summit is open to youth from all backgrounds from ages 12 to 20. Registration is required.

Where do I go?

United Voices will be held at the Genesis Centre on Saturday, October 26. Check-in will begin at 9:00 a.m. in front of the Community Gym, located on the lower level. The summit will conclude at 3:00 p.m. The Genesis Centre can be accessed by car, and is also a short walk away from the Saddletowne LRT Station located along the Blue C-Train Line.
