Wellness Workbooks and Guidebooks
Motivated by the fact that approximately 446 youth aged 10 to 24 die by suicide every year in Canada, the third highest youth suicide rate in the industrialized world, YMHC produces youth mental wellness tools and resources in order to place them in the hands of those who need them. All workbooks have been peer-reviewed by mental health professionals.
