YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH VIRTUAL CONCERT in Partnership with CDSBEO/UCDSB/CEPEO/CSDCEO

CMHA & the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Champlain East are inviting all students in grade 7-12 to take part in the first annual (online) Mental Health Concert. Sixteen talented students representing each school board in our region have prepared a Talent Showcase titled “United” with the help of their mentor, local singer-songwriter & mental health advocate Melanie Brulée www.melaniebrulee.com. Although the pandemic has kept us physically apart, music, talent, and creativity unites us all. We hope you enjoy this special concert event and learn about local Mental Health Resources available to youth in our region.
