FoundryBC: Now accepting applications for community Balancing Our Minds Youth Summits!

October 1, 2018 - October 15, 2018

Submit an application for funding to host a Balancing our Minds Youth Summit in your Community!

Community Summit Applications

Funded by the Canucks for Kids Fund, BC Children’s Hospital is seeking five communities in British Columbia interested in planning and delivering a Balancing Our Minds Youth Summit in their community. A Balancing Our Minds Youth Summit is a free one-day event focused on youth mental health and achieving the following goals:

  • Increase knowledge about mental health and substance use
  • Build awareness of available mental health tools, resources and services
  • Decrease stigma towards individuals experiencing mental health challenges
  • Generate ideas on how to promote mental health and wellness in school communities

Balancing Our Minds Youth Summits are based on the province-wide event Balancing Our Minds held at Roger’s Arena from 2013-2016. The event was inspired by the idea that an important first step in changing how mental health is discussed and experienced in our school communities is getting together youth and educators from across the province to engage in thoughtful dialogue, education, and idea sharing on how to better promote mental health and wellness in our school communities.

Thanks to the Canucks for Kids Fund, BC Children’s Hospital will support communities to host their own Balancing Our Minds Youth Summit events in the 2018/19 school year. 

Please complete the fillable PDF application form and return it by e-mail to: [email protected] 

Applications will remain open until Monday, October 15, 2018.
