Our mandate at Youth Talk is to support the creation of youth-led projects that inform peers about the myths and realities of suicide, educate youth about mental health and provide useful information about local resources.

Simply said, we work with teams who are interested in suicide prevention and mental health to work on peer-led projects. We work with peers to create projects that they feel will generate awareness in their community.  We do this through the process of youth engagement. 

We propose to continue our youth engagement work over the next year. Our plan is to help recruit and support new teams and plan awareness projects that cross both regions. We have worked on some amazing projects over the past few years and plan to take on quite a few more. 

Some projects include:
-T-Shirt experiment
-Poster & Button campaign
-Mental Health awareness video
-One day youth conference
-Youth Talk anthology
-Video survey & documentry
