Program Feedback

Quotes from High-School Aged Participants in the Program

  • Grade 10 Student

    “I feel like I can manage stress a lot better. It doesn’t get to me as much as it used to.”

  • Grade 12 Student

    “My ability to ask for help has improved a lot. Before I thought asking for help was being weak, but I was wrong. I have also met new friends and I am letting myself know that people are meant to help each other.”

    “I’ve learned I need to help myself before I can help others and I am finally prioritizing my own health.”
