How might we make services and supports easier for young people to access in our region?

01 Feb 2019
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

When children and youth face challenges, they can find it difficult to ask for help because of stigma. Peers, adults, and communities may reinforce expectations and stigma, making it harder to reach out when something is wrong. Legal requirements around disclosure and parental permission can make it difficult for young people to feel a sense of safety, privacy, and confidentiality. We need to build empathy and reduce stigma within our community. We need to provide resources that support caring adults and peers. This will make our community more open and caring for young people.
