We believe that by improving access to integrated mental health supports in the community, we are creating a system where we deal with problems while they are still small and manageable, rather than waiting for crisis.
We know that 70% of mental health conditions emerge in childhood or adolescence and that the earlier they are treated, the higher the chance of a positive outcome.
Yet, access to appropriate care remains a challenge; most services are for adults, and mental health care options for children and youth are too limited.
We must and can do better.
We need timely, effective service that meets people where they are at. This need is even more pressing for young people, because a small gesture can impact the life of a child and their family for years to come.
The Mental Health Foundation is bringing more than 800 business and community leaders together to meet the experts and hear from those personally involved at its annual breakfast. Your support will help us transform care for youth in Edmonton.
Join us on March 14, 2018 and help us pave the way to a better future in mind.
If you would like to purchase tickets to attend, or discuss other ways to support the Mental Health Foundation Breakfast, contact Dana by email or by phone at 780.342.7953.
