Blind Spots: A Scarborough dialogue on youth mental health

May 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


What is seen and not seen when looking at the mental wellness of our youth growing up here in the most diverse community on earth? Find out at this community dialogue.


The panellists include:

  • Romeo Gordon, who will share his experience along these lines as a Scarborough youth and YouthLink participant.
  • Nenookaasi Ochrym, who will share her experience as a case manager and outreach worker in indigenous mental health and addictions at TAIBU community health centre, work that is informed by her multi-racial heritage.
  • Deborah Goodman, who heads up The Child Welfare Institute within the Children’s Aid Society. She has researched youth mental health in Scarborough from several vantage points and will share worthwhile results which YouthLink has applied to its own work.
