Youth Engagement Toolkit for Mental Health

by Marion on May 31st, 2018

Hello Sprynters:

The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health has created:

Walking the Talk: A toolkit for engaging youth in mental health

The toolkit is based on a positive youth development model and includes good information on:

What is youth engagement?
What are its guiding principles?
What are its core components?

There are links to other resources, such as Mind Your Mind, a website designed to work with young people to co-create interactive tools and innovative resources to build capacity and resilience.

There is great information here to build the case for using a positive youth development approach to achieve mental health as well as positive outcomes in recreation, education, employment and youth-related programs. It also provides information that support the Ministry of Children and Youth Services Stepping Up: A Strategic Framework to Help Ontario’s Youth Succeed.
