Felt really comfortable with the counsellor, who was awesome! Felt safe to speak the truth without being judged.
Nexus celebrates Child & Youth Mental Health Week with a new video!
Friday, July 5, 2013May 5th-11th, 2013 is Children's Mental Health Week, and to support this event Nexus Youth Services has released a new video called It's Okay to Ask for Help featuring youth who use our counselling and drop-in services. In this video, our youth talk about the importance of seeking help for mental health issues, and how much better they felt after accessing Nexus's services. The main message in this video is that even though it might be scary at first, asking for help will make you feel a lot better. We are so proud and happy to have such awesome youth mental health advocates speak on behalf of Nexus.
We'll be releasing a series of short videos over the coming months featuring more youth and our counselling staff. Stay tuned and please share this video with your friends!
