Provincial Network

website-2The New Mentality has groups that operate in children’s mental health agencies across the province. Each group is led by youth facilitators in partnership with an adult ally, who is a staff from the agency. Groups complete projects in their communities to raise mental health awareness, fight against stigma toward mental illness, and inform peers about services and resources available in their community. Groups also advise agencies on how to create youth-friendly services and embed youth voice into their agency through leading youth engagement practices.
