The local team at Canadian Mental health Association Victoria will provide skills to manage and support distress, anxiety, or anger and reduce bullying through education and facilitator training in three programs: Living Life to the Full for young persons, a coping skills program for their parents, and Mental Health First Aid for adults who work with youth. These evidence-based programs, based on cognitive behavioral therapy and a proven offering in Scotland, will target 40 youth, 20 parents, and 40 youth service providers in a series of workshops, with follow-up support referrals.
