We are absolutely thrilled to have O’Hara Technologies Inc. as a new sponsorship partner supporting the work of our youth speakers.
“Young people aged 15 to 24 are more likely to experience mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders than any other age group.” Statistics Canada (2013). Canadian Community Health Survey – Mental Health
Given the prevalence of youth facing these challenges today, there is so much work to be done to decrease stigma, increase awareness and create a safe space for youth to talk. Thank you for your generous support of $5,000! These funds will help us to train our youth and equip them with the necessary skills to pay-it-forward and help other youth find their voice, have hope and feel less alone in their struggles.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, thank you again and we are looking forward to an ongoing partnership with you!
