Accomplishments

  • Advising Maltby on new policies, names of programs, and how to make Maltby more youth friendly.
  • Attending the Roadmap to the Wellness committee and the Maltby Quality Committee.
  • Creating a Facebook post during Children’s Mental Health Week.

Goals

Our goal is to help youth and young adults in the Kingston, Napanee, Northbrook, Sharbot Lake and Sydenham areas have improved access to mental health services in-person, in schools, and online. We do this by being a part of the Maltby team and lending our voices to decision making, which effects how services are developed and delivered. Our goal is to provide a youth perspective on children and youth mental health.
