Please join us on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 for an MP Policy Café on the very important subject of Youth Mental Health. Co-hosted by myself and the Vancouver Quadra Constituency Youth Council (CYC), the discussion features special guest Katherine Moore, UBC psychology graduate and political activist for mental health.

An estimated one in five youth and young adults are affected by a mental illness or disorder, with wait times for accessing support and services often stretching more than a year. This poses one of the most critical challenges facing youth today. Katherine will offer insights based on her unique experiences and challenges as an undergrad. During her time at UBC, Katherine founded the UBC Positive Psychology Club and the Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses Student Network – aiming to improve campus culture around mental health.

Our MP Policy Cafés are «world café» format events designed to stimulate conversation, seek input and generate ideas. We welcome your thoughts and solutions for strengthening support for youth struggling with mental health issues, and better promoting mental wellness in schools and communities. A report summarizing participants’ input will be shared by myself with my colleagues in Ottawa and BC’s Minister of Health.
