New Northern Mentality
The New Northern Mentality Youth Group is a youth-led advocacy group that is committed to opening up the conversation about mental health and breaking down the barriers (eliminating the stigma of having a mental health challenge and/or getting help for mental health) in our community. Youth engagement is about providing a safe space for individuals to connect and giving a voice to those who are passionate about all things mental health.
Our goal is to help improve programs and services at Algoma Family Services by developing and implementing projects to advocate for mental wellness.
We host, facilitate, and participate in a range of activities linked to mental health initiatives including:
- Community Engagement ex. Returning to School: COVID-19
Edition Survey and Report
- Provincial Retreats & Conferences ex. Disable the Label
- Youth-Led Community Events ex. Blue Monday
