Mental health and wellness affects the way people think, feel and act. Taking care of our mental health is just as important as having a healthy body. One out of every five children and youth in Canada (20%) has a diagnosable mental health condition. Canada has the 3rd highest youth suicide rate in the industrialized world. It is time that we demonstrate with action the value we place on the lives, health and wellness of young people.

Our target audience on Friday is camp groups of children and youth. By bringing discussions of mental health and wellness into the community, we normalize the conversation on taking care of our mind, body and spirit and strengthen the sense of community and connection that is vital for good health and wellness.

Please register your camp group using the Eventbrite link with the total number of campers.

Please send us an email at admin@youthmentalhealth.ca if you require funding for buses. We will do our best to accommodate any busing requests.

If you have any questions about the Fair and activities, please send an email or contact YMHC at 647-952-9642.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 16.
