I'm participating in the RBC Race for the Kids to support youth mental health through the Family Navigation Project (FNP) at Sunnybrook.
As many as 1.2 million young people in Canada are struggling with mental health issues; yet only one in five will get specialized treatment. This is largely because families don’t know where to turn to find the services their children need.
The FNP at Sunnybrook partners families with professional navigators who are knowledgeable about the services that exist, and become allies in guiding families toward the right care at the right time. Navigators are clinically trained health professionals who conduct a thorough assessment of concerns, assess the needs, and provide expert navigation of the health care and social service system.
By sponsoring my 10k run, you are helping youth find the right mental health support they need, when they need it most.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
