Developed in response to Canada’s ballooning youth mental health crisis in partnership with the NTCI Guidance Department, the Wellness Fund will support student mental health and wellness initiatives at the school. These include—but are not limited to—individual counselling with a health professional or social worker, participation in programs developed by organizations providing mental health support to students, or any other initiative which, at the discretion of the Guidance Department, is considered to be effective in assisting NTCI students with their mental health needs.
Here are some examples for how your donation can help:
$250 – supports one session of a well-being supporting practice/technique (1 set of yoga, mindfulness or meditation classes)
$500 – supports one training program for a youth leader who wants to lead other youth in wellness-promoting practices (eg/mindfulness)
$1000 – supports a 6 to 8 one-hour sessions of therapy for a student in mental health distress
