Spotlight on Youth Mental Health
About This Campaign
As part of CameronHelps’ advocacy and education efforts, we are presenting a forum called Spotlight on Youth Mental Health. There is no cost to attend the forum but please RSVP so we can best prepare the location. We are bringing together a panel of leaders who represent different aspects of the issue, including programming, emergency response, teaching, health care, research, and more. The expert panel includes Jennifer Brighton, MSW, RSW, MPEC, Melanie McGregor, Canadian Mental Health Association, Halton, Charlene Abrahams, CYAN Community Youth in Action, Teresa Wilson, HDSB and Dan McGann, MSW, RSW, developer of the Youth at Risk Run Group at Credit Valley Hospital. This is an evening for discussion and focus. Please join us and listen, learn, discuss and be inspired by those who are on the front lines dealing with Youth Mental Health. Light refreshments will be served.

Campaign to Support Team Unbreakable
The goal of Team Unbreakable is to reduce the stigma of youth mental illness, build awareness of the issues, and to promote the positive aspects of physical health on mental health. By doing this we aim to reduce the incidence of youth suicide and promote wellbeing.
The Team Unbreakable Program is a recreational run program that promotes better youth mental health through exercise and education. We team up with schools (as a recreational program available to all) and in several hospitals, community health agencies and family health teams (as a run therapy program). The school program is endorsed by several school boards and has over 1000 students participating every term. It is supported by a curriculum, materials, and workshops. We raise awareness and help bring people closer to the issues through speaking engagements, workshops, special events and media.
Feel free to contact us for more information or to find out if there is a Team Unbreakable near you!
