Disable the Label 2017 Registration Opens!

February 28, 2017

Disable the Label (DTL) is The New Mentality’s annual summer training retreat for young leaders and their adult allies in the mental health system. The event takes place over four days at YMCA Geneva Park in Orillia, Ontario. From Tuesday, July 11 to Friday, July 14 youth and adult allies from across the province gather together to learn skills, share about their local work, and build connections with each other. 

At Disable the Label, we train youth to facilitate groups and create projects that decrease stigma. We teach adults and youth how to engage youth to have a voice within the mental health system. We train youth to use their stories of illness and recovery to make a difference. We connect you to a community of people who are doing the same things. 

This event is not for spectators. It will connect you to people through conversations that matter and ask you to think deeply about the difference you want to make in your community.
