Friends,
 
September is a beautiful month here in Newfoundland and Labrador! It is a busy time with summer break behind us and children heading back to school, and many volunteer activities gearing up for another year ahead.
 
This is also the time of year when we refocus on our work and personal goals and make plans for the year to come. We are working hard and putting plans in place to grow our organization to support programs on the front lines of mental health and addictions. We’ve had success and we’re excited to see what we can achieve when more of us work together to make real change happen. We respectfully ask you to join our social movement and become a Dollar-A-Dayer .
 
We hope you will join us on this important journey.
 
All the best,
Brendan, Alan & Andrew

Mental health problems and related stigma can negatively impact young people’s success at school and in all areas of their lives. That is why we have chosen to support the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s HEADSTRONG program! Through the support of our Dollar-A-Dayers, we will contribute to their ongoing efforts to change the way youth thing about mental health and create real change for students across our country.
 
The MHCC HEADSTRONG program was launched in Nov 2014 to change the way youth think about mental health, forever. Through their HEADSTRONG Summits, the program gives youth the tools, confidence and motivation to Be Brave, Reach Out, and Speak Up for mental health in their own schools and communities.
 
A HEADSTRONG Summit is a daylong youth anti-stigma event where groups of student leaders and teachers from many regional schools come together. They hear inspiring testimonials from people with lived experience of mental health problems, challenge their own stereotypes and create a plan for what they can do to combat stigma in their own schools.
