New Mental Health Initiative — Take5.

This year, OACAS will use Children and Youth in Care Day to launch a new mental health initiative — Take5.

With funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS), OACAS worked alongside the Youth Advisory Committee of First Voice Advocates, 20+ community organizations, and experts to curate information resources, original multimedia content, live workshops, and events for caregivers, children, and youth of all ages.

You can check out Take 5 by clicking here.

Also included below are two video messages from the Grandriver Zone Youth Champions, a group of people from 10 agencies who work together for youth engagement and support.
