Thursday, June 18, 2020
Graduation is one of the most important days of one’s life. Due to the Covid-19 situation, we understand that it is impossible to have an in-person one. Which is why we decided to create this online graduation for all students aged 10 to 30 years old, graduating this year.
I Will Rise
An inspiring Play about Friendship, Family, Faith & succeeding when race, law & mental health collide.
Know a child or youth with mental health challenges? 1 in 3 youth experience mental health challenges. Buy Now to Support Youth.
“I Will Rise” promotes healing from mental health challenges through Art, Family and Community. This Family Play expresses mental health in a way we can all relate to.
Audiences leapt to their feet giving “I Will Rise” a ten minute standing ovation on March 7, 2020, and You will too!
It’s Toronto! “I Will Rise” is culturally diverse & about friendship, family, faith and believing in your future when race, law and mental health collide.
Let’s Talk: Positively Youth Mental Health Conference
THE LET’S TALK YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH CONFERENCE will resume for a second year once Covid 19 restrictions on social gatherings are lifted.
The first event was launched without any media invites on May 16, 2019 at two locations – the first location had 162 students attend! We are pleased to announce two new dates: September 25, 2019 and February 13, 2020 in Ottawa to meet the demand and need. We support students in finding their diverse voices, expressing their feelings, finding their gifts and feeling and channeling their energies into positive projects that represent them, engage them and validate them! The Youth Mental Health presentations are delivered by diverse mental health professionals whose presentations have been vetted and pre-approved by our staff of educators and Board of psychologists and the school boards we serve. Our speakers and performers are diverse, youthful and authentic and connect with and engage with our diverse student population!
