Residents of Malvern have gotten together to speak up about the lack of major transit investment in North-East Scarborough for decades. They have gotten together to form the Transportation Working Group who are seeking to highlight the problems that residents face on a daily basis. Click here to go to the web page which has all the information you need to get updated about the transit issue here. Please take a moment to email or tweet (or both) the campaign to your local politicians to ensure that they take a step towards bringing transit to this neighbourhood.
Mental Health First Aid for Adults who interact with Youth is an initiative of the Mental Health Commission of Canada that focuses on mental health problems and first aid. It is delivered by trained facilitators over the course of 2 days. The program is evidence based, well evaluated and has been adapted for the Canadian context. It is intended for service providers, and other adults who work with youth but do not have mental health or addiction support as part of their service mandate.
MHFA aims is to equip participants with skills and knowledge that will improve their ability to:
• spot early signs of mental health problems in young people
• provide help on a first aid basis and link families to local resources
• help protect a young person who might be at risk of harm
• help prevent a mental illness from getting worse
