Project Summary (1,000 Character Limit): The Youth Engagement Advisory (YEA) Committee is a group of committed and enthusiastic youth aged 13 - 25 who are passionate about mental wellness in their community. Some of our projects include; creating a more inviting space for youth, working to improve adult-youth relationships and hosting mental wellness events within our community. To accomplish these tasks, the YEA committee would like to create colourful artwork for their space and develop mental health resources that their peers can access. The YEA would like to continue to meet bi-weekly in both St. Thomas and Woodstock. YEA meetings include wellness activities, discussion topics surrounding mental health, snacks and honorarium for their time. The YEA is an inspiration within their community and continues to influence positive change and decrease the stigma of mental health.
