Pledge to show up for youth

Every kid deserves help when they ask for it – but Canada’s mental health system is falling short. You can make sure youth don’t slip through the cracks. Don’t stand by. Take the pledge and raise your voice for youth across the country.

I pledge to show up for youth, because mental health matters.

  • I will be a committed advocate of youth mental health so that every kid gets the help they need.
  • I will do my part to urge all levels of government to improve access to mental health supports for youth in my community.
  • I will continue the conversation by talking openly and honestly about mental health with friends and family.
  • I will stand with Kids Help Phone and make sure there is a trusted ally for young people 24/7.

It’s not always obvious when young people need help – they don’t always send a distress signal. But when they do speak up, kids in crisis deserve a safe place to turn. That’s why we’re committed to standing in the gap for young people, getting them the resources they need, when they need them. By taking the pledge, you’re standing up for youth and showing that they matter. Take a stand with us.
