The Kids Come First Health Team has created a super-useful, one-page info sheet to help camps and their counsellors recognize and support children and youth with mental health concerns.

“Supporting Youth Mental Health” provides:

  • what to watch for,
  • helpful coping strategies,
  • ideas about who to turn to for support,
  • how to start conversations about mental health and
  • ways to connect with care options.

Many camp counsellors are youth, themselves. This handout will provide them a way to support children and youth in their care, as well as their peers.
