Holy Rowers

Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County

CFSSC is a local registered and accredited charity recognizing the need for preventative mental-health education and professional early-intervention for youth to prevent at-risk symptoms from escalating into crisis. In 2019, our Community Programs team delivered 64 in-class workshops to 1,200+ students in six high schools across our region. Workshop topics included Social Media & Our Mental Health, Self-care Strategies for Youth, and Female Empowerment & Self-esteem. An additional 609 students attended three mental health symposiums at three different high schools, with 76% (or 463 students) saying their event made a positive impact in their lives. A 12-week mindfulness program reached another 28 students. We are working to bring these and other mental-health programs to area youth. While our work this year brought much-needed supports to nine local high schools, we had requests from nine others that we could not accommodate because of limited organizational capacity. Our participation in Barrie’s Dragon Boat Festival is a strategic investment in our youth. Your participation will help us reach and help more young lives.
