We C.A.R.E Grey Bruce Launch

 

A new website www.WeCareGreyBruce.ca, launched today, provides tools and resources to support youth mental health wellness in Grey Bruce.

 

The new site was developed under the direction of the Grey Bruce We C.A.R.E. Project. The Project brings together more than a dozen community agencies and area school boards in a ‘call to action’ to support youth mental health wellness. Their vision is that everyone in Grey Bruce will make a commitment to show We C.A.R.EConnect with, Ask about, Reach out to, and Engage with youth and their families to increase awareness, understanding, compassion and support for youth mental health.

 

Youth troubled by mental health issues look to either parents or friends for support. These are called ‘Natural Helpers’. A recent survey found 86 per cent of youth want to connect with parents and/or family members if they were having a mental health difficulty. Young people state that they provide support to friends as best they can but have limited understanding of mental health and don’t know about resources in the community. The website supports these Natural Helpers with practical tools for both adults and youth.
