Prior to March 2020, an estimated 26,000 children and youth in Waterloo Region struggled with mental health concerns. With the effects of COVID-19, we can only imagine what those numbers are now.

Many are experiencing extreme anxiety, difficulty sleeping, and persistent sadness stemming from changes in their routine and school; stressed out family members and isolation.
