CMHA-VF Receives a $3,000 Youth Grant to Launch a Youth Mental Health Literacy Program in Surrey.

We have provided an annual grant to the Canadian Mental Health Association Vancouver-Fraser (CMHA-VF) for $3,000. The grant will support the Here4Peers program in Surrey. The Here4Peers program is a mental health literacy program delivered by youth, for youth within the school system and has been in operation for five years. It aims to reduce the stigma of mental illness, increase mental health literacy and create a supportive environment for youth to access help for mental health concerns. The overarching goal is to increase the capacity of youth to develop and maintain good mental health through education and early intervention.
