Teen Mental Health Projects
With the generous support of Enbridge Gas Distribution, the Niagara Falls Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee (MYAC) is implementing a series of mental wellness projects for teens.
The student led projects will take place in December and January and will bring customized activities to high school students across Niagara Falls. The projects will feature: study skills, self-care, contests, giveaways, visits with therapy dogs, exam survival kits, and more!
“The exam season can be extremely stressful for students so we are very thankful to Enbridge Gas Distribution for giving us this opportunity to spearhead teen mental health activities that are truly student driven,” says Daniel Krowchuk, Co-chair of the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee. “The timing of this generous sponsorship is perfect!”
“We really want to play an active role in getting students to think about taking care of themselves during stressful times like exams,” says Chantelle Tran, Co-Chair of the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee. “Having the financial support from Enbridge has allowed us to develop a whole series of activities and events to reach as many teens as possible.”
High school students can watch for project details at their schools. Everyone can follow along on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook using @nfmyac and #myacwellness.
A HUGE THANKS to Enbridge for making this happen!
