Youth Mental Health Forum October 3, 2017 at St. Mary’s

The Human Services Justice Coordinating Committee of Leeds and Grenville will be presenting a Youth Mental Health and Addictions Awareness forum tonight at the St. Mary’s Library from 6pm-8pm.

Matthew was an active youth in the community when he and his family started noticing signs that he was not well in his late teens and early twenties.

Matt and his family struggled to find the right help for Matt in the local mental health community right until the time of his passing.

This year speakers from Children’s Mental Health of Leeds and Grenville, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Addictions and Mental Health, RNJ Youth Services, Connections, will present. As well, Mark Heffernan of the Brockville Police Service will speak about a proactive Community Oriented Patrol program operated by the Brockville Police Service to help those in need locally.
