May 7 National Child and Youth Mental Health Day


May 7th is about building caring connections between young people and the caring adults in their lives. We know having caring, connected conversations can have a big impact on the mental health of children and youth.

Conversations about mental health:  What it sounds like at different ages.

It’s never too early to start … and never too late to keep trying. Join us for a conversation about how to connect with our kids between the ages of 0 to 18 years. Led by Karen Peters, RCC ThriveLife Counselling and Victoria Keddis, Parent & Manager, FamilySmart
