What is the 1 in 5? It is a simple question to answer if you work within the spectrum of New Path Youth and Family Services or any other Mental Health focused agency – It is the statistic that one-in-five people in Canada, in any given year, will be faced with a mental health problem or illness.
The New Path Foundation has launched “Help The 1 in 5” as a way of bringing our community together in support or every child and youth affected by a mental health challenge. It is designed to be the beacon that engages our capacity to help children and youth whose needs around dealing with Mental Illness may have previously been invisible.
We invite you to learn more about our work and welcome any feedback, suggestions or advice on how we can support the 1 in 5.
