Attention Youth – Shine The Light on Mental Health Wellness!

Posted on: March 5th, 2014

Shine The Light on Mental Health Wellness posterHands TheFamilyHelpNetwork.ca is asking youth…how do you stay “mentally well” through our new video project on Mental Health Wellness!

We are asking students from across Nipissing and Parry Sound Districts to record their peers as they answer 3 questions about how they stay mentally well. We are looking for raw footage in English or French that we will collect and edit into one video to be presented during Child and Youth Mental Health Week (May 4 – 10, 2014). The video will be a key part of Hands’ presentation to grade 7-12 students throughout Nipissing and Parry Sound schools during this important awareness week!
