Living with a teen is hard. Living without one is harder. Join us to better support teen mental health.

​It’s one of the most pressing issues facing our teens today – the lack of support for mental illness and its tragic consequences, such as suicide. 1.2 million Canadian children and youth are affected by mental illness – yet less than one-quarter of them are getting help. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among our youth.

Let’s open the door so that we can drive more conversations regarding youth mental health, and get our children the help they need by calling on the government to establish a National Suicide Prevention Fund.

Take Action

  • One out of every 5 children and youth in Canada (20%) has a diagnosable mental illness.

  • Suicide is the #1 cause of non-accidental death among youth.

  • Almost 90% of people who die by suicide have a mental illness.

  • 3 out of 4 youth with a mental health problem will not receive treatment.

  • Every year we lose 762 young Canadians to suicide. That’s 2 every day.

  • As many as 173,000 young people will try to take their own lives this year

These facts speak volumes.
We need change.
