Bell Let's Talk Community funding will support mental health first aid training for staff and volunteers, and the subsequent development of a peer support program (including materials, youth committee honoraria, meeting support, etc.) in connection with the community’s Youth Drop-In Centre for Inuit which opened last year in a newly-renovated, fully staffed building.

Northern Youth Leadership – Yellowknife, NT

This organization runs camps that bring together youth from across Northern Canada to develop the inner and outer resources needed to overcome challenges, realize their full potential and live healthy lives. By intervening at a young age, NYL programming builds resilience and confidence, and develops protective factors for mental wellness. Bell funding will enable NYL focus on helping girls process their experiences, heal through cultural and athletic pursuits and rebuild their lives through skills development.
