*************************
INNISFIL - Building on its success from last year, the Speak Your Mind – Simcoe/Muskoka Youth Mental Health Summit will be held on May 29, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Innisfil Recreational Complex. This event is for youth in grades 8 through 12, and offers guest speakers, workshops, educational sessions and much more.

“The idea here is to bring our young people together to provide them with that safe space where they can share their ideas,” said Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin. “By doing so, we hope to give young people the tools they need to be the change that they want to see in their communities when it comes to mental health.”

“We had so much interest in our first year so we knew it was a priority to have this event again,” said Town of Innisfil Programs Coordinator Jodi Longland. “Hearing some of the stories from the students and watching them take some of these issues into their own hands can be truly exciting.”

The Speak Your Mind – Simcoe/Muskoka Youth Mental Health Summit is organized thanks to a partnership between the Town of Innisfil, and the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

Youth can register to attend this free event by visiting www.innisfil.ca/SpeakYourMind.
