Coping with COVID:  Supporting Youth Mental Health

April 20, 2020

Webinar | Virtual Event

With the success we saw from our #IMPACTCOVID Virtual Youth Summit, we, at CCYP, felt compelled to maintain the momentum. We are pleased to announce our #IMPACTCOVID Webinar Series. It will be virtually hosted bi-weekly on Mondays at 1pm (EST). This objective of the project is to provide youth with tips, insights and tools that help them sufficiently navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. These sessions are 100% free.

Our first conversation will be hosted in partnership with The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and the topic is: Coping With COVID: Supporting Youth Mental Health. Here’s what to expect:

As the COVID-19 virus continues to affect our lives, it can feel like a stressful and scary time. It’s normal to feel anxious right now with all the changes happening around us, but it’s also more important than ever to think of ways that you can take care of yourself and focus on your mental health! Join our conversation as we discuss ways to cope during COVID-19 and support youth mental health. This webinar will include a panel of youth experts from CAMH’s National Youth Action Council (NYAC).
