Run4Youth and support mental health
The Rotary Club of Alliston has launched Run4Youth South Simcoe.
From now until the end of September, you can register alone or in a group to walk, run or bike any distance to raise pledges. Money raised will go towards youth mental health programs at New Path Youth & Family Services and here at Youth Haven!
The pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of young people. Through our helplines, we are witnessing increased stress, anxiety and depression in young people as a result of the current crisis. Social isolation, the disruption of routine, health fears, and families under duress are all factors that are leading to increased mental health challenges, especially during an already vulnerable time of their life.
