Boozhoo and welcome to the NWO Be Well Passport. We acknowledge the land we stand on as within Treaty #3, Treaty #5, or Treaty #9, the traditional land of the Anishinaabe and Métis people. This is where we live, learn, work and grow. Acknowledging the traditional territories of our ancestors demonstrates respect for the original custodians of a region and serves to strengthen our relationships to one another and to the land. We can also find strength within ourselves when we stop to remember and appreciate the space around us and the courage of those who came before us. Miigwetch.

COVID-19 has—and will continue to have—an unprecedented impact on youth mental health. Support systems that were already overtaxed are being pushed beyond their limit. Young people have restricted access to community supports. Some are stuck in homes that are unsafe, while others don’t have a space to call home. Many are navigating unemployment and the financial fallout of the pandemic. We’re working around the clock to make sure young people have the education, resources, and community they need right now in order to look out for their own mental health and that of their peers.
