Creating Change, Together: Leading Impactful Mental Health & Substance Use Initiatives in a Siloed & Under-Resourced Sector

June 20 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Young Canadians are faced with a complex world that has detrimental effects on their well-being. The latest World Happiness Index revealed young Canadians are one of the unhappiest generations in the world, proving that the need for effective youth mental health initiatives are clear. Our sector is no short on solutions, yet these solutions are often met with barriers like capacity, resources and funds that inhibit sustainable change.

Amidst recent funding and budget announcements, including the federal government’s Youth Mental Health Fund, we are presented with the opportunity to lean into partnership and collaboration efforts to lead successful and sustainable initiatives.

Join us as we share 5 strategies you can begin implementing as soon as tomorrow to help overcome common barriers and obstacles within this line of work. We will also provide free resources from Frayme and its network that you can utilize in the design of your own mental health initiatives and solutions and discuss how our network of lived experts, Groundbreakers, are actively working alongside corporations to ensure your solutions are grounded in lived expertise and therefore, more effective, accessible and relevant.
