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.

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.
