About Minds in Bloom
Join us on May 27, at 6 pm at the Forest City National Golf Club for a Spring dinner for mental health and education.
Good Neighbors Canada is joining hands with Western University’s Faculty of Education to improve the quality of life for children, youth and families through mental health and educational support, locally and globally.
We will be raising funds for two causes, one here in Canada and one abroad, both rooted in early interventions. We want to make sure children and youth can thrive and grow with solid foundations to create a better future.
- Local cause: the Child and Youth Development Clinic here in London, ON. With 693 referrals, the CYDC supported over 500 children and youth (3 to 18 years old) with mental health and educational needs in two years, filling a mental health service gap. They provide high-quality and affordable consultation, assessment, and intervention services from graduate student clinicians in psychology and social work.
- International cause: La Palangana Primary School in El Cedro, Guatemala. The school doesn't have enough space for its 326 students (5 to 12 years old), so the children have to share packed classrooms and even whiteboards. There is no electricity. Some of the classrooms are made of iron sheets and they leak when it rains. We want to Save a School once again by improving their learning environment.
