Kickstand provides young people, aged 12-25, with access to quality integrated mental health support, connection to peers, social service providers, primary care, and substance use support; all under one roof.
Kickstand Connect is a free online virtual clinic where young people can receive same-day appointments with counsellors and peer-support workers or participate in group activities and workshops. It serves young people across Alberta and is especially significant for those unwilling (due to stigma or incapacity) or unable (due to physical or geographical isolation) to access in-person services.
Seize the Awkward
Having personal conversations can be, well, awkward. Seize the Awkward.org recognizes that. Starting a conversation about mental health does not need to be uncomfortable, and it can make all the difference.
The take-away message? You don’t have to be an expert to talk to someone about their mental health.
The website features testimonials from people whose mental health benefited from conversations with others, offers conversation starters and tips, and tells you what to do next. Get out there and seize the awkward!
The Bring Change to Mind Talk Tool encourages a dialogue around mental health. Just pick the mental illness you want to talk about and who you want to talk to about it, and the site will generate a video and a written prompt.
This tool is meant to show the many ways you can talk about mental health with people in your life. But, everyone’s experience is different. So, if you think, “wait, that’s not how I feel,” you’re probably not alone. Use these words as inspiration, but also feel free to find your own.
