YMHConference feels it is very critical to confirm that racism and discrimination of any form has a profound debilitating traumatic impact on the Mental Health of Black and diverse students, which is why educational success for marginalized groups living below or close to the poverty line is lower.
YMHConference believes in and provides comprehensive, responsive and race-specific mental health services from mental health professionals with lived experiences in order to break this cycle.
YMHConference serves EVERY demographic and has for many years provided race specific mental health services to black youth who continue to be counselled by black counsellors with lived experience.
Our Advisory Board consists of health experts, doctors, educators, counsellors and most importantly YOUTH.
With the partnership between Voice of Men 360 and National Collaboration for Youth Mental Health, NCYMH CBC, the organizations believe they can insure more boys and men stay in school, reach their full potential and learn the coping skills needed to withstand the pressures of life.
