COVID-19 Update – Here4Peers
Due to COVID-19 this program is currently undergoing development for virtual delivery, therefore is not available. Program information will be updated once the pilot has successfully concluded. In-person service will resume when it’s safe to return to the classroom.
This interactive mental health awareness program aims to reduce the stigma of mental illness, increase mental health literacy and create a supportive environment for youth to access help for mental health concerns. It is offered to high school students to provide them with respectful language to be able to talk about mental health issues as well as provide effective tools and healthy coping strategies for dealing with stress, anxiety and depression. The program also provides students with current information on accessing help for themselves, their peers and their loved ones. The strength of the program is that trained youth leaders in school settings deliver these interactive workshops.
If you are interested in receiving the workshops in your school, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
