|Big Brothers ||We support child and youth development through essential volunteer-led mentoring programs.

We have lived experience and we honour those with lived experience. Lived experience means we’ve been there, and we know what it’s like to struggle. We exist to make things better for children, youth and young adults with mental health challenges and their families or other caring adults. We provide families opportunities to speak with other families who understand and may be able to offer support or advice. We also provide information, tools, and tips on how to support and assist children with mental health difficulties. 'in the know’ provides expert speakers on topics important to families and/or those working to support the mental health of children and youth. Participating can happen either in person at various community sites or online. Watch any past topic from our library archives.
