The Talk

It's Okay To Not Be Okay


“The Talk” project is peer-led project to increase youth access to mental health supports for young people who are involved in, or at-risk of being involved in, the criminal justice system. Through the training program, youth peer educators work on the development and delivery of awareness building workshops with law enforcers, mental health workers and legal aid workers, with a goal of increasing access to supports while changing local culture and practice in supporting youth living with mental health concerns.

Project partners, residents and youth participants (Peer Educators and target audience) will learn about how law enforcement interacts with the community, legal and mental health systems; youth will develop skills as Peer Educators; the project team will develop, together, accessible outreach materials targeting youth, and will deliver 3-4 awareness- raising workshops to other youth and members of the wider community.
